46th Annual AREUEA Conference Paper

Abstract:     
Our study examines whether the NFIP induces excessive risk taking in real estate development, and the extent to which this places additional burdens on taxpayers. We use data from Florida over the period 1975 to 2000, during which time communities in each of the state's counties (with the exception of Highlands County) participated in the NFIP.
