Morrison, Alan (2004) Life Insurance: Regulation as Contract Enforcement. Economic Affairs, 24 (4). pp. 47-52.
Debating the minutiae of insurance regulation without a clear understanding of why insurance companies are regulated is futile. In this article I discuss the economic rationale for insurance business regulation and conclude that the appropriate role of the regulator is to enforce contracts which might otherwise be broken. I argue that if this is the case, regulation should be optional, and that it need not be a monopoly activity.
