Forget what I said about taking longer.
It took very long from the 2007 autumn peak.
Maybe it'll be faster, maybe it'll take longer.
The recession will probably be shallower but longer than 2008/2009.

Monetary policy and fiscal policy have relatively leverage/space for maneuver this time around (assuming no genuine helicopter money is used).
The timing of the massive 2017 tax cuts was comically bad.
