Book: Beating The Business Cycle

Data, Reports, Graphs and Information About ECRI, The Economic Cycle Research Institute.

ECRI is an independent institute dedicated to economic cycle research in the tradition established by its founder, Geoffrey H. Moore, whom The Wall Street Journal called "the father of leading indicators." Their mission is to advance the tradition of business cycle research established at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and Center for International Business Cycle Research (CIBCR). When Moore passed away in 2000, his former student, Alan Greenspan, called him "a major force in economic statistics and business cycle research for more than a half-century."

Following in the footsteps of his mentors, Wesley Mitchell and Arthur Burns, Moore developed the first list of leading indicators of recession and recovery in 1950, the composite index method in 1958, and the original index of leading economic indicators (LEI) in 1967. Today, ECRI represents the third generation of researchers carrying on this tradition of cyclical investigation.

ECRI's funding comes primarily from professional subscribers to our forecasting services. This is somewhat unique among research institutes where it is common to find major benefactors providing the bulk of funds. ECRI's independence and objectivity, reinforced by having a diverse subscriber base, is highly valued by many.
