Is This What the Future Will Be?

By Pierce Power

“Marine Insurance Claims in the Coming Millennium”

Author:  Pierce Power

Published:  1997

When Pierce Power was asked to provide comments about the future in his 1997 paper “Marine Insurance Claims in the Coming Millennium,” he did what all Martin & Ottaway consultants do; he ran his ideas by the other consultants in the office.

Wondering about the future quickly became a running commentary at the office, and this 2997 paper was the result.  It proves two things: papers by committees result in strange sausage and many fertile minds can create things that maybe are not that crazy after all.

Global warming anyone?  Meteor strikes? Aerial general average?  A Pangalactic Association of Average Adjusters?  Rising sea levels?  So far we are pretty much on track. And we are sure Scotty will be one of our consultants.
