This Month Sponsored by AgentSync

When my younger daughter was a freshman at Yale, I was encouraged that her intro to economics class included a fairly long section on the economics of insurance -- essentially, an exercise in determining how much people valued the peace of mind they get from having policy in place. Insurance certainly never came up in any economics classes I took way back when, and I took the materials as a good sign: A top-tier college was making insurance intriguing for smart, young students.

Alas, I couldn't interest my daughter in the insurance industry. And there seems to be a lot of that indifference going around, based on the persistent concerns in the industry about the talent gap.


Jenn Knight, co founder and chief technology officer at AgentSync, offers some intriguing thoughts on a way forward in this month's interview.
