The Austrians are stirring again. Peter Boettke has posted up some interesting news about a project that will probably be worth folowing up from time to time.

As readers of this site will know, I am heading up a project on Katrina at the Mercatus Center that is focusing on three dimension of social transformation — civil society and social capital; political economy and governance; entrepreneurship and cities.

Katrina unfortunately has provided economists and public policy analysts with a ‘natural experiment’ in which nature’s fury enables us to study both the folly of man (due to both his hubris and incompetence) and the capacity of human beings to stare adversity in the face and fight it back with the ultimate resource — the human imagination.
