Abstract: Four years ago, soon after September 11, I was one of many columnists who speculated about the economic damage caused by the terrorist attacks. But in economic terms, the attacks had relatively little effect. The financial and trading companies that had been located in the World Trade Center soon set up operations elsewhere, Wall Street was up and running the next week, and the recession of 2001 ended a couple of months later.
