Maine’S Workers’ Compensation System: Is It Making The Grade?, Jonathan W. Reitman

Maine Policy Review

Fundamental changes in Maine’s workers' compensation system were legislated four years ago. What impact have they had and what remains on the policy agenda?

Input Demand Under Yield And Revenue Insurance, Bruce A. Babcock, David A. Hennessy Dec 1994

Input Demand Under Yield And Revenue Insurance, Bruce A. Babcock, David A. Hennessy

CARD Working Papers

The question of how insurance programs affect agricultural input use is commanding increasing attention. Previous studies disagree on the likely effects of insurance on fertilizer application rates. Whether insurance is a complement or a substitute for fertilizer depends, in part, on whether the probability of low yields is positively or negatively affected by increased fertilizer rates. This study uses field-level data measuring the response of corn yields to nitrogen fertilizer to determine if the technical relationship between yield and nitrogen fertilizer supports the hypothesis that crop insurance or revenue insurance could induce increased application rates. Our results indicate no support ...

A Discussion Of Social Protection And Private Insurance, Gary S. Fields Jan 1994

A Discussion Of Social Protection And Private Insurance, Gary S. Fields

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking paper, informative and interesting. I learned a lot from reading this and have already passed it on to others.

In my comments, I would like to do four things: highlight the major points and the rationale for them, raise a few quibbles, put forth some additional issues, and propose a possible resolution of a dilemma raised in the paper.

But let us first try to be clear about what we are talking about. Professor Pestieau characterizes social insurance as being mandatory, universal, and redistributive. I would define it slightly differently: “Social insurance is ...

A Crisis In Insurance, Benjamin Lipson Jan 1988

A Crisis In Insurance, Benjamin Lipson

New England Journal of Public Policy

As the life and health insurance industry evaluates its long-term financial goals, the cloud of Black Monday — October 19, 1987, the day the stock market collapsed — blurs its cherished investment income projections. With investment portfolios under siege, mutual life insurance companies and stock companies alike are wary of making policy-pricing miscalculations that could prove to be disastrous. As if that weren't enough, one single disease — acquired immunodeficiency syndrome — looms as the most serious threat to life and health insurers for the remainder of this century. The spread of the new disease has caused insurers to adjust their underwriting requirements ...


Determinants Of Health Insurance Coverage For Farm Family Households: A Midwestern Study, Helen H. Jensen, William E. Saupe Jan 1987

Determinants Of Health Insurance Coverage For Farm Family Households: A Midwestern Study, Helen H. Jensen, William E. Saupe

Economics Publications

Data from interviews with a random sample of farm households in eight counties in southwestern Wisconsin are used to describe the distribution of health insurance coverage among households and health related fringe benefits of off-farm employment. An analysis of health insurance coverage shows major factors associated with lack of health insurance to include lower total household income, larger household size, and being more conservative regarding risk in farming. Although not significant, the signs of coefficients estimated for formal education and lacking fringe benefits in operator off­ farm employment are consistent with expectations.

Optimal Insurance Coverage, Vernon L. Smith Jan 1968

Optimal Insurance Coverage, Vernon L. Smith

Economics Faculty Articles and Research

There is limited treatment of the optimal protection of assets against casualty or liability loss. The problem of optimal insurance coverage is formally similar to the problem of optimal inventory stockage under uncertainty. If casualty or liability loss (demand) is less than the insurance coverage (inventory level), excessive insurance cost (inventory holding cost) is incurred. If casualty or liability loss (demand) is greater than the insurance coverage (inventory level), one must absorb the cost of the unrecoverable loss (sales loss). These two components of loss must be balanced in determining optimal insurance (inventory) levels.
