This is a new phrase in English. I hear a lot of people using it in the news and I heard the US president Obama use it the other day. It’s one of those words that’s getting popular right now. The “new normal” is a situation that would have sounded strange only a few years ago, but it’s common and “normal” now. After the September 11 airplane attacks, the “new normal” was higher security in airports. Obama was saying that the “new normal” now may be a world with high unemployment (many people with no jobs) and companies making a lot of money. A lot of companies have figured out how to make money with less workers. Another “new normal” is people living and working longer. Listen for it on TV. I’m sure you’ll hear it if you watch the news in English.
