Today's Key Question:

Would you like a glimpse of the electronic future of the life insurance industry? 

See the article below from Think Advisor.


"COVID-19: US State Policy Report – September 2-4, 2020"

From National Law review:

* This report captures the shifting state, territorial and local government policies and guidance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and reopening of the economy in the US by tracking public information from official sources, such as gubernatorial comments, executive actions and guidance.


"No, insurance won't save the businesses destroyed by anti-police riots"

From Washington Examiner:

* “Dozens of owners whose Twin Cities properties were severely damaged in the May riots have been stunned to discover that the money they would collect from their insurance company for demolition won’t come close to the actual costs of doing the job,” the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Contractors told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that prices for riot-related projects are indeed higher than usual. However, those contractors said, that is because government ordinances mandate that they treat debris from burned-out buildings as “hazardous,” which can then as much as double the cost for the job.

It takes a toxic cocktail of ignorance and privilege to look at the smoldering ruins of a family-owned business and shrug it off with some quip about how an insurance company will no doubt fix it. Perhaps this ignorant talking point about insurance is really about assuaging the guilt of those who have targeted innocent entrepreneurs. Perhaps it is meant to assuage the guilt of the rioters’ enablers.

In the end, though, it does not change the fact that innocent people, including many immigrant people of color, are suffering in the name of “justice,” which, ironically enough, is the exact opposite of justice.


"Opinion: What could save the hotel industry amid the pandemic — a hub for work and play"

From Market Watch:

* In this vision of the near future, hotels all over the world will become hubs for leisure and work, widely distributed near remote workers’ homes, as they serve in more locations than solely major metropolitan areas. They’ll offset their widely fluctuating performance-based room night rates into recurrent membership-based monthly rents, which can combine access to other amenities into a variety of tiers that allow for modern merchandising and 1:1 personalized marketing.


"COVID-19, the U.S. Life Sector and Long-Term Growth"

From Think Advisor:

* At Ensight, we have seen a dramatic shift towards the virtual sales experience with growth of 155% in just the last three months. This agile response to COVID-19 bodes well for returning the sector to long-term growth and wider financial protection in society
