Business cycle indicators have a valuable informative and complementary function in business cycle research and forecasting. They have also made a considerable contribution to the understanding of business cycles. Whereas economic theory nowadays has largely severed itself from business cycle research and only makes a limited contribution to the explanation of the cyclical phenomena, econometric research is attempting to fill this gap, also by employing the informative strength of business cycle indicators. This is especially evident in the models that use leading indicators for estimating business cycle movements and cyclical turning points. Enterprises, consumers and economic policy makers would all benefit from these models aimed at explaining business cycles and forecasting economic activity. (fragment of text)
