SOME economists welcome sharp economic downturns because of the "cleansing effects of recessions". They often refer to the concept of "creative destruction", developed by the Austrian-born economist Joseph Schumpeter in the 1950s.
IN EVERY recession, there is a lively debate among economists as to whether the eventual economic recovery will be "L-shaped", "V-shaped" or "U-shaped".
