Readers will learn about recessions and how they are a part of the normal economic cycle: peak, recession, trough, and recovery. This narrative explores how inflation and the imbalance of supply and demand can cause an economic downturn. Through the twenty-first-century example of the Great Recession, students will learn what causes these periods of economic contraction, what leads to recovery, and how to avoid severe and prolonged periods of stagnancy, also known as economic depressions.
