Economic cycle

Economic cycles are phases that the economy goes through and that are defined by situations such as rising inflation, unemployment, economic slowdown, etc.

Economic cycles follow one another in time and repeat themselves in a similar way. They usually have an expansionary phase, where the economy grows, and a recessionary phase, where growth contracts.

They are called cycles precisely because when one ends, another one begins.
