Luis Figueroa has a conversation with Virgil Storr regarding his academic experience in the economic approach after natural disasters. Storr comments on his research after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and according to him, entrepreneurship rather than solidarity, is one of the most common quality individuals develop during such rough situations. They also discuss the role of politicians in these particular cases and comments on the lack of action and the expectations set in people which, eventually, are never met.
