On insurance contract design for low probability events
No 2008-33, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX
This paper extends the analysis of insurance contracts design to the case of "low probability events", when there is a probability mass on the event "no accident-zero loss". The optimality of the deductible clause is discussed both at the theoretical and empirical levels.
