The Stay-at-Home Labor Market: Google Searches, Unemployment Insurance, and Public Health Orders

This article looks at the relationships between internet searches for unemployment-related terms, unemployment insurance (UI), and the public health orders issued in the U.S. during the Covid-19 pandemic. We find that Google searches for unemployment-related subjects surged before the record increase in initial UI claims, which in turn peaked before the public health orders were implemented.

Do Insurers in Catastrophe-Prone Regions Buy Enough Reinsurance?

To protect themselves from catastrophic losses, insurance companies buy insurance, in the same way that people do. These contracts are called reinsurance agreements, and come in two main forms: proportional and nonproportional contracts.
