Index, they were on average considerably deeper than the declines in the other indexes, but not particularly long (columns 9 and to). 32 A comprehensive assessment of how business cycles in the different countries compare would require an analysis of the performance of many individual indicators, which is not possible here. However, I examined the industrial production and employment components of the coincident indexes under consideration and found that a few general observations deserve to be made.

S. recession of 1990-1991 (not covered here) will qualify as another mild one. Table 1-4 leaves no doubt about the relative shallowness of even the most severe of the recent recessions (1973-1975 and 1981-1982), which contrasts sharply with the depth of either of the two interwar depressions, let alone that of the 1929-1933 collapse. Despite the upward trend in joblessness during the recent period, the maximum unemployment rate in the early 1980s was still less than half those reached in the 1930s (column 5).

This difference points in the same direction as that observed in recent times, but it is much weaker and there are no large and systematic disparities in country growth trends to account for it. To my knowledge, it was never explained.
