Point A represents a slump, the bottom of a business cycle while point B suggests the economy has entered the recovery phase of the cycle.  As recovery proceeds the output rises to a point C above the trend path; we call this a boom.  Then as the line dips via D towards the trend line with output growing less quickly during the recovery and least quickly (perhaps even falling), during a recession.
