Insurance = Unequal Distribution of Assets

Insurance schemes benefit fewer than many. An earned benefit is not without a loss so the net benefit is less than the earned benefit. All parties to the scheme suffer losses, whether its an indemnified loss or cost-of-risk loss.

Some lose more than others. Some benefit more than others. Insurance is not fair. Neither is welfare, workers pay for those who don’t. So why have either?
