WK 7 Research Paper is due
Message from Dr. Osborne:
First, students should choose a topic about insurance that needs more research. For example, health insurance is a controversial subject that some believe needs to be socialized whereas others are strongly opposed. It would be good for students to show both sides of the arguments. And then provide their final thoughts. However, I prefer that they do not use first person. The paper should be written in APA and from 8-10 pages in length. I have attached the syllabus that provides the rubric. A powerpoint also should cover the main objectives.
Students have asked for me to provided additional ideas for research topics. The lectures and the textbook should provide you plenty of other examples. However, I will provide you a few more: flood insurance; business interruption coverage during the covid pandemic (restaurants were without coverage); what happened in the real estate bubble and mortgage insurance during the last financial crisis (perhaps, give different views of research based on whether this could happen again); Captives insurance and how they may benefit a business owner. The Senior Deputy over Captives from the NCDOI will be lecturing this coming week 4. (MO 20220407)
