about this item

Citing the fundamental relationship between insurance and regulation on the one hand, and insurance economics on the other, this volume notes that as insurance law and regulation must be informed by economics, so, too, must insurance economics appreciate the ways in which law and regulation structure and define insurance markets. While institutional and historical factors have created a substantial wall between insurance economists and scholars of insurance law and regulation, this handbook aims to help break down this wall by providing those interested in insurance across academic disciplines with accessible contributions from many of the top insurance economists and legal scholars. Fifteen chapters are divided into four parts: why and how do individuals purchase insurance?; the role of the state in insurance markets; insurance regulation; courts and insurance.
