introduced the idea that business cycles are the e fficient fluctuations of a competitive economy in response to exogenous persistent technology shocks. This idea, dubbed Real Business Cycle theory, represents a return to classical ideas that characterized business cycle theory in Downloadable.

Comovement of economic activity across sectors and countries is a defining feature of business cycles. However, standard models that attribute comovement to propagation of exogenous Towards an endogenous propagation theory of business cycles book struggle to generate a level of comovement that is as high as in the data.

It offers new perspectives for modelling growth cycles dynamics underlining the possibility of building an 'incomplete business cycles theory', as well as highlighting the existence of a convergence between the last theoretical developments of both growth and business   modifications.

In particular, business contractions became somewhat shorter, and much milder and less frequent, whereas both real growth and inflation grew much more persistent.
