The purpose of the study is to identify and explain the phenomena of so-called business cycles in developing countries. The justification for doing so is twofold:
first, the observation that developing countries appear to be displaying cyclical patterns in their economic activity which are increasingly corresponding to such patterns in the advanced countries; and,
second, the relative dearth of studies of cycles in the developing countries.
It is this lacuna that the present study attempts to contribute to filling.
