As Tortorano and Tortorano point out, each of these clusters is expected to grow well above the national average in the future, and a solid research foundation provides the key element needed for local areas to capture that growth. Although Katrina did substantial damage to the city’s economy and its industries, both the maritime and oil and gas clusters have made solid recoveries, and the hospitality cluster appears to be on its way (Liu and Plyer, 2007; University of New Orleans, 2007).
