What were the real consequences of the 9/11 attacks? Â Many in this Â class are too young to remember where you were or what you were doing Â when this attack occurred. While you may have learned of the attacks Â from history, have you ever thought about all those affected by that Â economic impact? Â It wasnâ€™t just airline employees affected, itâ€™s an Â impact that rippled through society and is still felt in some ways by Â people and business outside the aviation today.Â
Itâ€™s true it took the airline industry several years to recover; Â however, both small and large business also suffered from reduced Â travel. Â Small business suffered as passenger travel was restricted due Â to fear. Â As small business suffered so did larger business that relied Â on the smaller ones for goods and services. Â Â Countless people in all Â sorts of industry lost their jobs and livelihoods as a result. Â Just Â take a minute to think about where those businesses and people would be Â today if this attack had not occurred and the US economic machine not Â been stifled? Â
The way we view our personal liberties has also been affected. Â Â Greater restrictions on security tends to overlap with what many in the Â public feel are their rights. Â They now go through various machines and Â are subjected to much greater scrutiny which to them is contradictory to Â what someone living in a free society should be subjected too.
What are your thoughts on the impact from the 9/11 attacks? What Â other areas have been affected? Can you elaborate on what was discussed Â above?Â
