This unit examines the various political economic aspects of business cycles. It surveys the predominant strands of thought, historical and contemporary, as to what causes cycles. The unit provides students with an overview of the ways that the upper turning point of a cycle has been, and is being, detected. Finally, it critically reviews how fiscal and monetary policies have been used to thwart the onset or soften the impact of crisis, drawing the implications for today's economic challenges.
