Hello
I can't understand the part after 'pronounced', why does it not have a verb?
Growth rate cycle downturns are pronounced, pervasive and persistent declines in the growth rate of aggregate economic activity (Bry et al, 1971).

    It doesn't need a verb. The main verb of the sentence is "are." "Pronounced" in this case means "notable, marked, clearly apparent."
