The Viability of a Crop Insurance Investment Account: The Case for Obion, County, Tennessee
This paper evaluates the feasibility of farmer-owned crop insurance accounts. The accounts, similar to retirement accounts, accumulate pre-subsidy premiums and dispense indemnities. Government involvement is that of guaranteeing loans if indemnities exceed the account balance. Substantial government savings occur through insurance premium subsidy elimination.
