Cavalcade of Risk - November 4, 2009 - How Much Assurance Does Your Insurance Offer?
Welcome to the November 4, 2009 Cavalcade of Risk — the How Much Assurance Does Your Insurance Offer edition! As I was going through the submissions for this particular carnival, I noticed a large number of insurance related topics. Does that mean we're becoming more concerned about whether we have enough (or the right types) of insurance? Or was it just a coincidence? Whether you've got concerns about life insurance, car insurance, health insurance or business insurance — you can find information in this carnival.
