ABSTRACT
The article reports on the quality of life in New Orleans, Louisiana several months after it was hit by Hurricane Katrina. Rents over living space in the state have doubled, sometimes tripled. The public school system of the state has been eviscerated in favor of radical privatization. Roughly half of the schools scheduled to open will be charter schools managed by private sponsors.
