It gives consumers a new way to save money by returning to individual motorists the insurance cost savings that result when they drive less. Motorists who continue their current mileage would be no worse off on average then they are now (excepting any additional transaction costs), while those who reduce their mileage save money. Distance-based pricing can help achieve several public policy goals including actuarial accuracy, equity, affordability, road safety, consumer savings and choice.

  • The Reserve Fund was only the second MMMF to break the buck since the SEC adopted rules governing these funds in 1983, with the first being the Community Bankers US Government Fund in 1994. 6 Both funds had losses significant enough to cause them to break the buck and sponsors that were unable to provide non-contractual support to prevent the losses from being passed on to shareholders.

  • The scale for the vertical axis of the figures generally runs from a negative 25% to a positive 125%, since, for the majority of the programs, the net amount priced varies between these two levels.

Note that the amount priced is a measure of within-crop year price risk, as the higher the proportion of a crop priced, the lower the sensitivity of the value of the farmer’s position to crop price changes.

On the other hand, air pollution related risk is less often connected to a direct personal benefit, although it is to some extent transport induced. Because of this different risk context, air pollution related risk aversion is likely to be higher than for fatal road accidents.
