After Katrina, is the $200 billion going to the right things?

History is the source code of the future:

Facing more than $200 billion in charges for hurricane recovery along the Gulf Coast, the most natural comparison has been to the Marshall Plan, the U.S. project to reconstruct Europe after World War II. The scope of destruction in southern Mississippi and Louisiana, along with the northern Gulf Coast of Texas is certainly comparable to that wreaked by war, but is destruction the only thing to which we need to be responding?

I’m having some fun with history over at History is the Source Code of the Future. If you’d like to contribute, please let me know.
