U-shaped recovery


A term used to describe the contour of economic measures on a chart that depicts an economic recession and recovery with a gradual decline, a protracted and uneven bottom, and a gradual rise. The 1973-75 recession was thought to be u-shaped because of the nearly two year duration of zero or slow growth before its gradual recovery.
