Dick Grasso, the chairman and CEO of the New York Stock Exchange, surrounded by politicians and World Trade Center rescue workers, was in a suitably sombre mood. ‘Good morning and welcome to the greatest market on the face of the earth,’ he said, adding, ‘today, America goes back to business, and we do it as a signal to those criminals who inflicted this heinous crime on America and Americans that they have lost.’
