Economic Contraction

An economic contraction, often referred to as a “recession,” officially occurs when a country experiences two consecutive quarters of decreasing gross domestic product (GDP). An economic contraction can also be viewed as a general slowdown in a country’s economic activity; a period when the unemployment rate is rising, corporate profits are decreasing, personal income is declining, and bankruptcies are also on the rise.
