Economic rebounds in U.S. and euro zone: deceivingly similar, strikingly different


  • Anthony E. Landry
  • Carlos E. Zarazaga

As the dust settles, patterns among key macroeconomic variables have emerged. Identifying them may make it possible to understand the nature of the downturn and, thus, determine which policies might best address its fallout.
