Indeed, when historians write the actual history of our time, the crash of 2008, which produced the bigest global economic crisis since the Great Depression might receive more attention than the tragedy of September 11. What happened in 2008 was a result of trends peculiar to the 1970s, for instance, American consumers taking on excessive debt to finance consumption, despite their stagnant incomes, and the low interest rates. “As it happens, the costs to the world economy after the bubble burst, in lost wealth and slow growth, dwarf both the direct economic damage inflicted on Sept. 11, 2001 — $40 billion in insurance costs, temporary losses in the airline business and a stock market decline — and the indirect costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and of spending on homeland security.”
As I said already before- the only way to picture a different present is by playing around with various passage from the past and thinking of- how things could be different, depending on what had happened before. Now I can admit, that after doing it, I came to the conclusion that the world without this huge and devastating tragedy on the morning of September 11, 2001 would very likely be the same as it was before the terrorist attacks. That day dramatically changed the world history and there is nothing that could be done to take it back. Probably it will sound horrible, but maybe in our near future there is a possibility that we are going to meet some positive changes in the world, initiated by a disaster on September 11. We lost lives, but maybe it was doomed to be like that way, in purpose to change something.
