How insurers are planning

Insurers are the business world's reality check. They understood global warming long before other corporations did, because weather-related claims started soaring. Now they're taking avian flu very seriously—not only because it could lead to a lot of claims, but because their own people will likely be absent from work.

An insurers' association called LOMA has published a Special Report: Avian Flu and Insurers. It includes summaries of the pandemic plans of five major insurance companies, plus a detailed interview with the chief medical officer of one of those companies.

This is a must-read. And thanks to the reader who pointed me in the direction of this site.
