    This paper was written to kick off the conference celebrating the anniversary of Lucas's 'Expectations and the Neutrality of Money'. It recalls the state of macroeconomics in the late 1960's, cites some technical and substantive precursors of Lucas's idea, and explores the legacies of the equilibrium concept, monetarism, fiscalism, and standards proposed in Lucas's paper.
