Summary
Insurance regulation in the United States is at a crossroads. It used to be a given that the insurance industry would resist efforts to move away from state-based approaches toward regulation<U+0127> �but no more. Some now favor a greater role for the federal government, while others oppose calls to transition to a federal system. In any case, might not a competitive and innovative system of free-market insurance be preferable to best serve the interests of consumers? The current debate over insurance regulation is increasingly a struggle between competing interest groups and opposing ideologies about the proper scope of government<U+0127> �a conflict that affects individuals' decisions about how much risk to undertake, whether those decisions involve driving a motorcycle in dense urban traffic or building a home in a flood, fire, hurricane or other high-risk zone. But what types of reforms would best serve the interests of consumers? And what lessons can be learned from previous reform efforts?--
