I’m currently working on a book about slackish business cycles: economic fluctuations seen through the prism of economic slack. I’ll post new chapters of the book here as they are written. This is preliminary material, but I opted to share it nevertheless to elicit comments and start a conversation with interested readers. The material might also be helpful to students and researchers who are interested in similar topics.

If you have comments or suggestions about the material, would like to discuss parts of the book, or simply discover typos, please do email me .

Part A. Introduction

Part B. Data on slack

Part C. Slackish markets

Part D. Slackish economy

Part E. Stabilizing slackish cycles

Part F. Conclusion
