hard landing, soft landing

hard landing
  • the slowing down of economic growth at an unacceptable degree (relative to inflation and unemployment)
  • An economic state wherein the economy is slowing down sharply or is tipped into outright recession after a period of rapid growth, due to government attempts to rein in inflation.
  • as soon a u hear in the news about a hard landing in the Chinese economy similar to those in 1989 and 1994, consider it the best opportunity to buy into Chinese stocks or commodities
soft landing
  • the process of an economy shifting from growth to slow-growth to potentially flat, as it approaches but avoids a recession. It is usually caused by government attempts to slow down inflation
The criteria for distinguishing between ahard and soft landing are numerous and subjective
