dc.description.abstract The 1994 Northridge earthquake sent ripples to insurance conpanies everywhere. This was one in a series of natural disasters such as Hurricane Andrew which together with the problems in Lloyd's of London have insurance companies running for cover. This paper presents a calibration of the U.S. economy in a model with financial markets for insurance derivatives that suggests the U.S. economy can deal with the damage of natural catastrophe far better than one might think.
