''A matter of life or non-life: the role of economic uncertainty on insurance consumption''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.3 )
 
 
This paper examines the effect of economic uncertainty proxied by the World Uncertainty Index on life and non-life insurance consumption using a panel dataset from 114 countries between 1996 and 2017. We find evidence that while higher economic uncertainty lowers life insurance penetration, non-life insurance penetration remains unaffected by economic uncertainty.
