    Sure. If Obama hadn't bailed out the banks and the auto industry, and taken a hundred other steps to put the brakes on the free fall, it sure could have happened the way you posit it. But wait! There's a pretty fair chance for another such event right around the corner, with the idiot tariffs and trade wars, there are numerous indicators of another recession coming soon to a world near you!
