Homework Help: How to predict the length of a rec-/depression?

  1. Aug 14, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I wish to know how I can estimate how long a recession will last, assuming that conditions stay the same.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Given the amount of money the average company has now lost thanks to a stopped inflation, denoted by mi, we can estimate how long until the companies have recovered their losses. From there, we can estimate the length of the recession.

    This question has nothing to do with mathematics. While there are some simple math techniques for making predictions once you have your economic assumptions in place, the crucial part of such predictions are the "assumptions".
