Abstract: A few weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 200 1, I wrote a column that listed some of the economic lessons we could learn from the attacks. I talked about shocks to the economy, consumer psychology, and the persistent myth that reconstruction after such events is an economic boon.
