Overview

Managing Environmental Risk through Insurance by Paul K. Freeman, Howard Kunreuther

Insurance is one of several tools for addressing risk. In this volume, Paul K. Freeman and Howard Kunreuther demonstrate the comparative advantages of insurance for environmental risks relative to government benefit programs or to the imposition of involuntary liability using the court system. The authors analyze the nature of insurance, examine the insurability of conditions, and use concrete examples to show how insurance can provide protection.
