November 2012. Drawing comparisons between Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy last month, Dr. Ami J. Abou-bakr, Department of Political Economy, examines whether lessons have been learned by the US government.

With the US counting the cost of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to surpass $50 billion, Dr Abou-bakr believes the private sector is a 'fundamental' part of the nation's ability to recover.

Dr Abou-bakr is the author of Managing Disasters through Public-Private Partnerships (Georgetown University Press), due to be published in February 2013.
