  • First: Elected leaders start promoting an expansion 2 to 3 years before an election.
  • Second: One means of inducing an expansion is fiscal policy, with lower taxes and more spending.
  • Third: The economy expands, voters are happy, leaders are re-elected. But the expansion causes problems, such as inflation or budget deficits.
  • Fourth: These problems are solved with a contraction after the election, which ends in time for the next pre-election expansion.
  • Fifth: With major elections every 4 years, many leaders have a vested interest making this happen.
