New Orleans got damaged bad and lost lots of its recourse's and the city had to regrow and what if another Hurricane damaged the city again and the recourse's would get ruined again and he city would have to rebuild again. So with that said I think that New Orleans would not become the next boom town like Austin or Seattle.

New Orleans has a long way to go before it becomes a boom town.

The rampant crime and poverty probably has to be put in check first.

You're not comparing it to other possible "boom towns", so the city vs city room is the wrong place for this. It's a city-specific topic, so it's being moved to the New Orleans room for discussion.

Not only did you misspell resources twice, you have no idea what you're talking about.

Wrong. Successful business climates put poverty in check, and generate opportunity.
Not the other way around.

I believe it's a feedback loop, not exactly a cause and effect. Either one can come before the after, and either reinforces the other.
