what is the difference between slowdown,meltdown,recession and depression (economic)?

sriram said...

slow down is this: there is growth but its rate decelerates. Meltdown is a dramatic drop in growth- usually into the negative territory. It is not a technical term. Recession is negative growth- contraction- for two quarters on a trot. Depression is severe recession lasting for a relatively long period. Features of recession become more pronounced- drop in employment, prices, investment and yes growth! You can call it slump too.
