Greater Recession

The “Great Depression” is the popular name for the economic crisis of the 1930s; the term “Great Recession” has been used since the Great Depression for smaller economic dips, most notably the recession of 2007-2009.
A possible recession after the “Great Recession” of 2007-2009 has been called the “Greater Recession” since at least April 2010. Another term, the “Greatest Depression,” has been popularly used since 2008.
