Growth recession

Definition:

A growth recession is a prolonged period (more than one quarter) of significantly below trend real GDP growth. For the U.S., this would be growth in the 0-2 percent range. While an official recession usually has two quarters of negative real GDP growth, this is not required in a growth recession.
