ABSTRACT
The article features the study conducted by Erwann O. Michel-Kerjan on the implication of disaster and public policy in mitigating disasters in the U.S. When Hurricane Katrina and the September 11, 2001 event hit the country, both events serve as a wake up call to address the inefficiencies in the government's disaster and public policy. It gauges its efficacy in preventing attacks, reducing the country's vulnerability to terrorism and minimizing damage and recovering from attacks that occur.
