Abstract:  Departing from the existing literature, we allow the shape of recovery to be different following each recession. We are motivated by the observation that post-recession growth paths seem to vary a great deal across different recessions. Using U.S. data, we find significant evidence for U-shaped recovery. However, the probability of a U-shaped exhibits large variations across recessions. Specifically, the recent three recoveries are very likely to be L-shaped. We also compute Beveridge-Nelson trends and cycles during each recession. We find that early recessions were largely due to drops in cyclical activity, but that recent recessions are associated almost entirely with losses in the permanent component of GDP.
