9/11 Expert: The Lasting Economic Effects of 9/11

Emory finance professor Jeff Rosensweig is director of the Global Perspectives Program at Goizueta Business School and is a frequest keynote speaker about international business. Prior to joining Emory, he was the senior international economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. 

He says the economic effects of 9/11 are still being felt today: “Probably for the rest of our history, we will have to spend more on national security,” Rosensweig explains. “Perhaps in ordinary times that wouldn’t matter as much, but if we look at our current economic picture, when there is so much worry about the gargantuan federal government deficit and a worry about what can we do to reduce our spending, here’s a source of spending that’s much greater and will remain much greater as a direct consequence of 9/11.”
