 n.— «Welcome to “hurricaneomics,” a term coined by Louis B. Mendelsohn, who began developing software in the 1980s to analyze intermarket relationships. Hurricaneomics deals with that imprecise slice of economics that suggests that disasters like a Katrina can set into motion a domino action that will have an effect on every U.S. citizen, no matter where they live, and on many different markets, reinforcing the significance of intermarket relationships.» —“The ‘hurricaneomic’ effect” by Darrell Jobman in Wesley Chapel, Florida MarketWatch.com June 1, 2006.
