This article not only adresses the fact that Hurricane Sandy caused damage to the US economy by tens of billions of dollars, but rather argues that the recovery in the future will pump money back into the economy. This will eventually help boost the economy, in a much needed time. The author however warns not to get too excited about the boost the reconstruction/ recovery will provide, as the effect from this will take years to flow through to sales. Although it is hard to estimate the dollar amount the recovery will provide the economy, the author uses the actions of insurers and bigger companies to estimate it to be around 80% of total economic loss.
