Economics 423 Insurance Section Introduction This section seeks to introduce insurance concepts parallel to economics concepts. We will talk about principles of insurance as a personal (individual and business) consumer of insurance, and as a supplier of insurance (broker or insurance company). We will use technical insurance lingo as it relates to the business but, more importantly, how it would relate to you as a consumer of insurance. Tips about this Section (Econ 423 Insurance) This section cannot be passed successfully without attending the class, listening, understanding (asking questions) and taking notes. The test will actually not be made until the end of the third class. The test will cover what was discussed in class only. Students are encouraged to ask questions of examples during class when the instructor is in class: this is the best way to understand the concepts: discuss it!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
