"The number of jobs at insurance carriers, agencies, brokerages and related businesses in Connecticut has dropped 29 percent, to 59,663 between 1990 and 2011, according to the state Department of Labor."

29 percent amounted to a 17k loss of jobs. Do you think carrier insurance can make a meaningful dent in adding back even hundreds of jobs? I must admit, I'd never heard of it before. Most corps are risk adverse, and I cannot picture most adopting its use. Unlike Health Care, where they know 97% will never use costly services, and 2-3% will acount for 80% of expenditures, other insurance claims/resulting liabilities are far more subject to spikes.
