Economy described as not too hot, not too cold, but just right. It enjoys sustained growth and low inflation. Although there is not precise markers of a Goldilocks economy, it is characterized by the following: brisk but steady GDP growth, low unemployment rate, low inflation, escalating asset prices (stocks, real estate, etc.), and low interest rates. Some economists consider this optimal, and in such instances, the government normally decides not to undertake any policy steps to improve macroeconomic performance.
