Bin Laden Economic Effect?: Ask the CEOs

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The killing of Osama bin Laden earlier this week prompted an outpouring of emotion and celebration in the U.S.

Is it the type of event that could provide a tangible economic boost to a nation?

1-800-Flowers (FLWS - Get Report) Jim McCann: "Certainly the economy's impacted by mood, and clearly there's a jubilant mood of achievement -- of pride. A great deal of respect and pride for our special services, our armed forces, CIA kinds of folks.

"One little thing that I've seen -- just last night I was speaking with Tim Hopkins, our head merchant, and he was telling me there's been a real uptick just this week in our Americana collection. He asked 'Do you think it's attributable to the actions of Team Six?' Frankly, I don't think it could be a result of anything else. I think it's just evidence of people's pride and feeling of comfort and achievement."
