The simple answer to this questions is False. In economics you learn the ideal of a business cycle, which is the layout for economic cycles. The cycle represents a wave in a visual representation. A peak or boom is the point at which the GDP is maximized; this is then followed by a recession where the GDP is in decline. To follow the recession you have a trough cycle, which is the point where GDP is minimized. To follow the trough you have a recovery cycle where the GDP is in incline to the point of the peak or boom. So to answer the question in an economic business cycle term an expansion follows a trough in the economy and actually leads to a peak or boom.
