With crisis comes new vocabulary. Out of the Great Depression came the use of the word "recession" to denote the end of a business cycle rather than crises, panics, and depressions, which had previously been used.
The recent crisis has given rise to many new words, including "haircut", "re-profiling" and the "Vienna Agreement". To the lexicon, we must add "financial repression". Like the other words, the concept of "financial repression" existed long before this crisis, but its use has risen and is becoming more central to the debate.
