Abstract

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, an important public policy question arose as to whether, and how, the federal government should intervene to provide a temporary backstop for property/casualty terrorism risk insurance. This paper examines several economic justifications for intervention and the rationale behind the Administration’s proposal for a temporary and limited government program.
