Should the Twin Towers in NYC be rebuilt?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Symbolism: Would the reconstruction of Twin Towers send a positive message to the people?

Pro

  • Twin Towers were a symbol of peace and prosperity. Pentagon, hardly a symbol of peace, has been rebuilt. Twin towers weren't. The message that this sends to the public is hardly positive.
  • The fact that the Twin Towers weren't rebuilt is a symbol of defeat of the american way of life. Actually, the current status of WTC site is one big advertisement for the success of terrorism.

Economics: Is the rebuilding of WTC economically possible?

Pro

  • The price of reconstruction would be like pool in a sea. The rebuilding of the WTC would cost only a fraction of the expenditures already spent on the War on terrorism, not to mention the cost of wasteful bailouts.
