Deadly floodwaters caused one of the biggest evacuations in US history when Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, Louisiana. Ten years on, the city still hasn't fully recovered. New economic, educational and housing models are in play, but critics say they're hurting the longtime residents who need help most. On Tuesday at 19:30 GMT, The Stream asks New Orleans residents how "disaster capitalism" has affected them, and explores how the city's growing pains are similar to disaster zones around the world.
