Should the Government Rebuild New Orleans, Or Just Give Residents Checks?

Edward L Glaeser
Published Online: 2005-09-21 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1553-3832.1121

Should government rebuild New Orleans? Edward Glaeser asks whether the residents would be better off with $200,000 in their pockets than to have $200 billion spent on infrastructure: shouldn't we be insuring the people, not the place? New Orleans has been declining and its people mired in poverty for decades; its port and pipelines cannot employ a large city, and $200 billion is unlikely to change that.

Keywords: cities; insurance
