    Cost Disclosure of Terrorism Coverage: Insurers must disclose terrorism insurance premiums and the existence of the federal backstop. While a literature on the economics of terrorism insurance is developing Smetters, ; Kunreuther and Michel-Kerjan, b; Lakdawalla and Zanjani, forthcomingthis book takes the approach of starting with the underlying risk of terrorism and only then asking whether the policy of government involvement-and the insurance market encouraged thereby-is suited to the threat environment as it appears to be evolving. Elected and appointed leaders need to provide the public with a moral and intellectual rationale that provides clarity and confidence in the actions taken. A farm bill, for instance, might contain provisions that affect the tax status of farmers, their management of land or treatment of the environment, a system of price limits or supports, and so on.

    For example, lengthening recoupment time frames, charging a broad group of policyholders, or allowing flexibility in applying a set-aside could help mitigate the effects. That said, it is evident that the character of al Qaeda today differs markedly from that which organized and executed the suicide attacks of September 11, Excerpted by permission. From a public policy perspective, the question is more appropriately whether these take-up rates will provide resilience in the face of future attacks and whether the losses of a future attack are spread across those at risk. State Regulation Uniformity: No stated uniformity.

    The take-up rates vary somewhat depending on the region and industry, with higher take-up rates in the Eastern and Midwestern United States 58 percent and 60 percent, respectively, according to Marsh than in the South and West 29 and 38 percent, respectively Congressional Budget Office,pp. Therefore, local and state police must be given the financial and practical means to create IFCs that will inform and support the activities of federal counterterror efforts. But some disagree on the government's role. Do you need a custom essay?
