INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'GREEN SHOOTS'
One of the first uses of the term green shoots was to describe signals of economic growth during the economic downturn in the United Kingdom in 1991. The term gained greater notoriety when it was used by U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke to describe positive economic data during the financial crisis of 2008-2009.
What provoked the thoughts for this short post are two:
1. The Graphic above which talks about the Survey which shows the Best Skills required in USA for Success.
2. An article in ET today where the new Chairman of the Niti Aayog in India is using a jargon "Green Shoots".
