Thanks for the Insurance Memories (and Lessons), Professor Schwarcz

posted by Nathalie Martin

This past week we were lucky to be edified by guest blogger Professor Daniel Schwarcz from the University of Minnesota School of Law. I bet Daniel is a great teacher. I mean, the guy can make insurance interesting, if not downright scandalous!

There was tons of foot traffic in the way of comments on Daniel’s blogs, especially the one about whether you can predict if your own insurer will pay large claims, and the one about how lenders should be handing insurance payouts when a home is in default or foreclosure. Daniel finished with his own Top 10 for  insurance reform. By the way, regarding his nutritional labels, this exact idea has been floated as a way to make disclosures more meaningful in all consumer contexts. Now let's just hope the regulators are listening.
