PEAK: The transition of a business cycle from an expansion and a contraction. The end of an expansions carries the descriptive term peak. At the peak, the economy has reached the highest level of production in recent times. The bad thing about a peak, however, is that it is a turning point, a turning point to a contraction.

JAWBONING: The use of verbal encouragement or discouragement by political leaders or other influential people to achieve particular results. This term was coined in reference to actions by President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s. It is essentially an attempt by the President or other influential leaders to change public sentiment and move the economy in a particular direction without implementing or waiting for the results of formal economic policies. This also goes by the term moral suasion.
