If insurers can tell the type of each consumer, will both types of insurance plan sell? Explain. d) (4 points) Suppose that half of the population is Type I and half of the population is Type II. Now suppose an insurer cannot tell which consumers are Type I and which are Type II. Consumers know their type but insurers can’t differentiate between consumers, so they have to charge a single price to all consumers. What is the minimum amount that the insurer would be willing to accept for an insurance plan, assuming both types of consumers buy policies? To receive credit you must show your work. e) (3 points) Under this scenario, will both types of consumers actually buy insurance? Explain.

    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.
