possible copyright violations, Great Depression text[edit]

I removed several sections from this page. Most of it was because text on the page included passages that seemed to be lifted entirely from [1] and [2], which I'm pretty sure are copyrighted materials (howstuffworks.com has a copyright notice at the bottom of its pages, at the very least) and as such are possible copyright violations. In particular, information about 2 different definitions of what a recession is and information regarding how governments attempt to shift a nation's economy out of a recession was removed.

There was also a lengthy discussion about the Great Depression that was out of place on this page. This has been removed to here, and if anyone wants to place it in the correct location (I suggest merging it into Great Depression if it isn't simply duplicated information from there). It follows:


Blacklisted Links Found on Recession[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Recession which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 5 external links on Recession. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 11:30, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Dr. Rios-Rull's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Rios-Rull has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


I would start with a general definition (A recession is a period ranging from a couple of quarters to a few years where economic activity is clearly below normal. Operationally it is typical to use negative economic growth for two consecutive quarters as the the threshold for a recession. Under this definition, the recession is over when growth resumes. With this notion the U.S. economy has been in a recession X TIMES in the last Y years, with the Great Recession of 2008-2009 being the largest in the post war.

This is unsubstantiated: "Recessions generally occur when there is a widespread drop in spending (an adverse demand shock)."

The article would benefit of much more academic scholarship. It is pretty poor in this respect


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

Dr. Barbier's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Barbier has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


The following paragraph should be added at the end of the section "Late 2000s":

"A notable feature of the Great Recession during the late 200s is that the major global economies devoted nearly 16% of their total fiscal stimulus to “green investments”, such as low-carbon energy, energy efficiency, pollution abatement and materials recycling, natural resources conservation and environmental compliance, and other green sectors. Of the US$3.3 trillion allocated worldwide to fiscal stimulus over 2008-9, US$ 522 billion was devoted to such green expenditures or tax breaks. The United States and China accounted for over two thirds of the global expenditure on green fiscal stimulus, followed by South Korea (11.5%) and Japan (8.3%)." [Ref: Barbier, E.B. 2010.
