Soft Landing A term used to describe a rate of economic growth high enough to avoid recession, but slow enough to avoid high inflation. When the economy is growing at a strong rate, the Fed will try to engineer a soft landing by raising interest rates enough to slow the economy down without putting it into recession. Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, was a master at the soft landing.
Hard Landing A term used to describe an economy going into recession as the government attempts to slow down inflation. The Fed will try to avoid a hard landing by raising interest rates only enough to slow the economy down without putting it into recession (a soft landing).
Growth in China’s economy slowed to an annual 9.1 percent in the third quarter from 9.5 percent in the three months through June Can slowing down to 8% be considered a soft landing?
American Economist NYU Professor Chairman and co- founder of Roubini Global Economics LLC. Most known for publications predicting the U.S. housing bubble
China’s efforts to prop up economic growth won’t help it escape the hard landing that will probably arrive in 2013 or 2014 The prospect of a soft landing in China is a “mission impossible” Policy makers will “do anything possible” to keep growth in national output at rates above 8 percent and ensure a “delicate” political transition isn’t hampered by an economic downturn
