the quake

FRONTLINE and NPR Planet Money correspondent Adam Davidson team up to explore the new economies emerging from the rubble in Port-au-Prince.

Ten weeks after the earthquake, the temporary settlements where Haitians congregated have developed into rich, complex communities. Planet Money's Adam Davidson visits Port-au-Prince's largest tent city -- spread out over what used to be an elite golf course -- and finds a rich, complex economy with more small business competition than before the quake. (Produced by Travis Fox.)
