The Insurance Information Institute has released an updated version of its "A Firm Foundation: How Insurance Supports the Economy" brochure. This colorful pamphlet features highlights from the A Firm Foundation Web site (http://www.iii.org/economics/). Charts show insurers' contribution to the national and state economies, the role of insurers as investors, how the insurance industry helps defray the economic cost of disasters and other ways the insurance industry plays a vital role in the economy.  A PDF of the brochure can be downloaded from the A Firm Foundation Web site at http://www.iii.org/economics/pdf/ . The Web site features national and state data.  A number of individual state versions are also posted, including a recently updated New York edition.
