Equilibrium in Insurance Markets: An Empiricist’s View

The Geneva Risk and Insurance Review, 2017, vol. 42, issue 1, 1-14

Abstract: Abstract Empirical models of insurance markets would greatly enhance our ability to understand policy-relevant questions. Yet they are still quite rare. This paper sketches such a model and surveys its basic elements. While much progress has been made in recent years in our understanding of insurance demand in particular, the most crying need is for market-wide data.
