About the Webinar

Recovering from crises and disasters is a daunting experience – the costs of recovery are significant, the benefits of recovery depend on other people in your community, and the uncertainty of what life looks like post-disaster. In economics, this is viewed as a collective action problem and it can be logical to wait for others to act first. Yet, we have all experienced and had to recover from crises and disasters. Join Stefanie Haeffele as she discusses the role of local entrepreneurship and self-governance in how we do, indeed, go about recovery and what that means for policy.

This is a previously recorded webinar. The recording includes a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period by LIVE attendees. If you are interested in attending one of our upcoming webinars, look under the Upcoming Events tab.
