As the flood waters rose in New Orleans and Biloxi, it became clear that Hurricane Katrina would be an unprecedented natural disaster in the United States. Now that the waters have receded and the rebuilding effort is underway, it is necessary to evaluate the relief effort for its failures and its successes in response to the calamitous storm. This AEI conference will bring to together a group of experts to provide a comprehensive look at disaster relief in this country. The discussion will include an examination of past relief efforts, the proper structure of relief, and an assessment of the effects of Katrina on the individual victims.
