The events of September 11,2001, unified our nation. But how long can this unity last? I examine the dynamics of the national shift between individualism ("me") and communalism ("we") on the heels of September 11 through comparison with analogous patterns in interorganizational behavior. Based on these patterns, I conclude that, despite the severity of the crisis, the United States will again return to "business as usual".
