Sandy's economic impact softens

October 25, 2017

For the most part, the state of New Jersey has “bounced back” from superstorm Sandy on an economic level, according to Dr. James Hughes and Marc Pfeiffer, of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.

However, there are exceptions which pertain to individual homeowners or unforeseen circumstances, the professors said.

Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012 killed 43 people and devastated the tristate area with its hurricane force winds.

Hughes, the former dean of the Bloustein School, said recovery on an economic level is evident by looking at New Jersey private sector job numbers from before the storm hit in 2011 to 2016., October 24, 2017
