Dr. Adam Rose from USC's Research Quoted in Recent Resiliency Podcast

On July 9th, the National Public Radio Planet Money podcast broadcasted a segment entitled “Is LA Ready for a Big Earthquake?” that featured the research of expert economic modeler Adam Rose, Ph.D. from the Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California.

Dr. Rose’s analysis detailed the potential impacts of a major earthquake in the Los Angeles area, noting that although a large disaster would likely cause a recession in the region, the resilience of its economic sectors should keep the deficits from reaching previous estimates. This analysis was conducted for a METRANS study that Dr. Rose worked on alongside his colleague Dan Wei, Ph.D. and Ohio State University Assistant Professor Zhenua Chen, Ph.D. in order to better comprehend the impacts of major disruption events.
