I doubt "the shrinking nineties" would catch on. Politics aside
(for example, many corporations are in fact growing, they're just
firing people because it makes the stock market happy), people
want a neutral to upbeat view of the present. I don't think we
even named the 1970s and 1980s, though: the idea seems to have
gone out of fashion.
