ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the various letter-shaped recoveries in the economy in Great Britain. He mentions that a saucer-shaped recovery is a sharp initial recovery followed by a levelling off halfway down the road. He suggests the very long (VL) recovery, wherein the stimulus causes a superficial recovery followed by a second decline until the economic and financial problems are corrected.
