Where are We Now in the Business Cycle?

Answer

There are four stages to the business cycle, creation, growth, maturity, and recession. The creation stage is where the planning and actual setting up of the business takes place. In the growth stage, a business is acquiring customer and its profits increase. The business develops it's brand identity and reaches it's target customers. In the maturity stage, a business has established it's identity and is known. It is at the height of productivity and knows its customers and their needs. In recession, which all businesses experience sooner or later, profits and customers decline and the business might develop an unfavorable image. Wise and positive business practices will see a company through this.
