While approximately $60 billion in relief aid has been earmarked to help the Tri-State Area recover from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the fact remains that things on the ground are hectic and harried. The funding that was promised to relieve the Tri-State has been delayed as a result of debates in both Houses of Congress, even as homeowners seek to rebuild and businesses seek to reopen along the flooded ruins of a shoreline. A lot of hard-working volunteers and little-known charity organizations have worked alongside FEMA and the Red Cross in getting people the food, shelter, clothing, and psychological relief they need. But all that’s just a bunch of temporary solutions. What we need is a concerted, multi-stage rebuilding effort on the part of private companies with the means and the skill-set to get things back up and running again.
We’re talking to you, construction industry of America. This tragedy should be a huge battle summons to the fact that our nation needs a heap of repairs and ongoing restoration effort. Already, we’re seeing the signal lights changing: for the first time since the Housing Bubble burst back in 2008, we’re seeing real growth in the construction sector of the U.S. economy. And while Hurricane Sandy proved a nightmare for those who lived through the worst of it, and for those (including insurance companies) who have to pick up the terrible tab in its aftermath, it’s up to somebody to lead the charge. If the government’s going to continue to dither about going full-force in its relief efforts, it’s up to private initiative and entrepreneurial spirit to get things rekindled.
