The Lucas quotation is correct, but probably not for his reasons. We know how to prevent a depression by printing unlimited money to bail out big financial firms. 2008 was the Great Recession, not a depression, because the Fed learned to print liberally. If there was another crash and ATMs were in danger of not working, why wouldn't we use the (digital) printing press again?
