NEW ORLEANS – James Richardson, director of the LSU Public Administration Institute and the Harris J. and Marie P. Chustz Distinguished Professor in Business Administration, was recently quoted in a WWL news article, “Migration to Louisiana slowing down.”
The article discussed residential moving company United Van Lines’ annual migration study, which showed that more people left Louisiana in 2011 than moved to the state.
Richardson told WWL that other parts of the country may be catching up with Louisiana in terms of increased employment after the recession, which has benefited Louisiana in the past few years.
“The rest of the country had a much more difficult time than we did. And, I think, from that angle, we had opportunities here in 2008, 2009 and 2010, proportionately, than other states may have had," Richardson was quoted as saying, further explaining that Louisiana’s resilient economy caused a large influx of individuals seeking employment.
