Abstract
An increasing number of declared major disasters in recent years leads to the question whether money spent on mitigation and preparedness (pre-disaster spending) is spent well to reduce the money spent on response and recovery (post-disaster spending). While research investigates the impact of politics on the decision-making process in regards of the declaration of a major disaster by the president, and the impact of new media on the decisionmaking process, research does not fully investigate the economic effects of pre-disaster spending on the postdisaster spending. However, a relationship between these variables should be present: A high amount spent on mitigation and preparedness before the disaster is expected to reduce the amount needed after a disaster. This paper will investigate this relationship on the state level.
