recovery

a phase of the BUSINESS CYCLE characterized by an upturn in the level of economic activity (ACTUAL GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT). Real output and investment increase and UNEMPLOYMENT falls. A recovery in economic activity is usually dependent on there being an increase in AGGREGATE DEMAND, which may come about autonomously or be induced by expansionary FISCAL POLICY and MONETARY POLICY. See also DEMAND MANAGEMENT.
