Which Businesses Are Helped, Which Are Hurt By War?

from the the-times-we-live-in dept

Well, now that it appears inevitable that we’re going to war, people are looking at who the winners and losers are likely to be from the business side (no matter how calculating or morbid that may be to some). Online conferencing firms see it as a big win. They’ve been doing well since September 11th anyway, and this just boosts the opportunity for them. Conversely, online travel sites are worried. Companies like Expedia have said they’ll issue full refunds for people who want to cancel their trips.
