Amazon might enter the Home Insurance space pretty soon

A fascinating peek into world of “Crypto Influencers”


  • Article on Amazon Insurance perspectives. They quote $1000+ avg monthly cost for home insurance in many US states. That’s bollocks (‘nonsense’ if you will). Commonsense (or online checks for those out of the business) immediately tells you that $1000+ are YEARLY rates… Such Low-cost/Low-quality journalism deserves no single minute of our time (at least of mine… ;-P, … I call this yellow financial press!).

    • Btw, I recently contested Lionel Barber @FT on some misconstruded statistics and manipulated facts in their articles. So far I only got Silence. … Let’s acknowledge it: FT’s post-truth standards are alarming.

    • Well, first of all, despite that mistake, it is still relatively likely that Amazon will enter this business.

      If you use for instance this calculator, you can see that a 500k home in Florida costs around 1500 PER MONTH to insure.

      Se before calling somthing “boillocks” I would advise to do some research yourself.

      • Thank you for taking the least representative case… ­čśë

        Florida is the most exposed area to natcats, and it would be great that the average american lives in 500k properties!

        PS. I actually had checked data for Texas which is quite above average for natcats too… ( Insurance in the $1000 range is realistically more of an annual rate accross US rather than a monthly one…
