Article of the Week
Why don't we better prepare for disasters?
Howard Kunreuther and Robert Meyer, both of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, discuss aspects of their 2017 book against the backdrop of the recent hurricanes that have caused billions of dollars in damage in the United States and across the Caribbean. Their book, "The Ostrich Paradox: Why We Underprepare for Disasters," examines the cognitive biases that impact disaster-prevention and mitigation decisions, such as flood insurance. The authors also recommend policy solutions that combine short-term incentives and long-term strategy.
