LUNCH & LEARN
Guest speaker: Dr. Kevin Simmons – Professor of Economics at Austin College
Dr. Simmons will be discussing the economics of natural hazards.
Similar to how the surety industry analyzes risk mitigation in construction, Dr. Simmons analyzes the cost of risk mitigation related to natural disasters which can have an obvious and not so obvious impact on the construction industry. Public and private industries are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost associated with natural disasters but it is only in recent years that social scientists such as Dr. Simmons have studied these costs and policies that are implemented because of them.
