113. Losers and survivors
There are some strange losers and survivors in WTC. It makes sense that the lower floors survived, but the top floors have some anomalies as well.

Losers:
  • Windows on the World (Risk meeting and only a stupid restaurant)
  • Hotel and Restaurant Employees International (stupid restaurant)
  • Cantor Fitzgerald Securities + eSpeed (risk competitor)
  • Alliance Consulting Group (unknown yet)
  • CARR Futures (risk management)
  • Sandler O'Neill and Partners (investor in eSpeed)
  • AON Corporation (risk management)
  • Keefe, Bruyette and Woods, Inc. (unknown)
  • Euro Brokers (risk competitor. the four survivors even got the advice not to go down)


    Survivors:
  • American Bureau of Shipping
  • Dun & Bradstreet (their buddy in risk)
  • Banco LatinoAmericano de Exportaciones Sud America (unk.)
  • Lehman Brothers (inside trading)
  • Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (84/3000, however 37 were stupid cops so that leaves 47 including the executive director Neil D. Levin)
  • ZimAmerican Israeli Shipping Company (decided to move out one week earlier)
  • Bank of America (inside trading)
  • Deutsche Bank (inside trading)
  • Raytheon Company (only lost four on the "planes")
  • Fuji Bank (doesn't make sense, since they were right on the impact area)
  • Morgan Stanley (inside trading)
  • Seabury and Smith (part of Marsh)
  • Kyoto Mo (competitor of Cantor Fitzgerald)
  • Fireman's Fund Insurance Company (used to be owned by Willy Hilliard, owner of Huffman Aviation)

    Marsh did loose 295 people (=20%). So why were they so bloody in their own company. They did a lot of inside trading, so they knew...
