The course of an economic cycle, characterised by its growth and contraction phases, can also be read through the performance of the sectors that constitute a country’s economy.

The reading is twofold: the phases of the economic cycle suggest which sectors to focus on; the performance of sectors gives us information on the state of a country’s economy.
