  • Indirect consequences of terrorism: the fight against terrorism (costs of prevention, antiterrorist policy and of defense, etc.) has meant important additional costs, in most western countries.

  • Terrorism and stock markets: the stock markets are the first to react in the face of a terrorist attack, reflecting thus the estimation of the impact the investors perceive.

  • Sectorial impact of the terrorism: The economic impact of terrorism presents very different  intensities in different sectors, a reason why it is enlightening to study those that can be most  affected (especially the tourist and transporty sectors).
