The article provides information on a survey commissioned by the Consumer Federation of America and Bank of America regarding the financial implication of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The destruction of the Twin Towers has brought a newfound interest in savings and debt repayment, and a diminished interest in buying luxury goods and lottery tickets. The survey is part of the America Saves campaign to encourage and assist individuals to save and build wealth more effectively. The survey found that a third of U.S. citizens were more interested in personal savings and 25 percent were more interested in reducing their debt.
