USA: Reform of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) - introducing long-term flood insurance

Huffington Post Inc.

Dr Erwann Michel-Kerjan debates the reform of the federally-run Programme and suggests that the development of longer-term contracts of 5, 10 or even 20 years, tied to the property and not to the individual, would bring stability to individuals and the NFIP alike.

Michel-Kerjan is an authority on managing the financial impact and the public policy challenges associated with catastrophic events capable of inflicting massive casualties and severe economic losses, such as 'natural' disasters, terrorist attacks, and pandemics.
