    Better keep a close eye on AIG. They continue to slip.

    I’m OK with this as long as next time AIG (or any of those other companies ex-AIG folks have fled to) fails, they let them fail. And I’ll name them: AWAC, Ironshore, Berkshire. The one ex-AIG fellow helped bring down Kemper. They seem to have a penchant for doing this.

    Better management, not tighter regulation, is what some insurance industry members need. Those who haven’t run a company, nor worked their way up in a company to do so, have no clue as to the problems in some companies. So, they blindly call for more stringent regulations. Nor do these ‘academics’ know the reasons that many insurers were consistently successful for long periods of time. Insurers with shorter periods of success, such as some recent startups, are run by competent, innovative, resourceful management of high integrity.
