2012 Universities Research Conference "Insurance Markets and Catastrophe Risk" - National Bureau of Economic Research
The subject of the conference is "Insurance Markets and Catastrophe Risk". This conference will highlight research on a range of issues related to insurance markets and catastrophic risks. Suitable themes for the meeting include: - What drives the demand for and supply of physical and protective measures, including but not limited to insurance, from such events for residential and commercial structures and activities? - Does the packaging and marketing of protective measures affect the demand for them, and the extent to which they reduce losses? - How is information about the probability distribution and consequences of these events formed and relied upon? - What distortions (institutional, behavioral, financial, theoretical) are present in markets for these risks? - How does the public sector affect the supply of and demand for protection and influence the recovery process after catastrophic events? - How do existing public and private interventions in the markets for catastrophe risks affect the overall level of risk-taking? - How do current public programs, and other potential programs, affect the distributional effects of catastrophic events?
