The Economic Outlook for the P/C Insurance Industry Webinar
Tuesday, October 8, 2013: 6:00 a.m.
In "normal times" a short-run economic forecast for the property/casualty insurance industry is likely to be fairly accurate, but these aren't normal times. Among many other major uncertainties, the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act is upon us; will the Federal Reserve begin "tapering off" in the third quarter?; we're closing in on the deadline for re-authorizing TRIA; major changes are afoot in the National Flood Insurance Program; the next fiscal budget for the federal government will have begun; and more. The webinar will put these issues into historical and economic context and aim to connect them to the unique characteristics of the property/casualty insurance industry.
