Speaker: Ryan Morhard, JD

Center for Biosecurity Associate Ryan Morhard explains the history of public liability insurance in the economics of nuclear power and the role of the Price-Anderson Act in facilitating the unprecedented growth of nuclear power in the US. He then discusses the experience following the accident at Fukushima, ramifications for the US, and recommendations for future action. The video is a brief on Morhard's recent article, "The Price-Anderson Act and the Role of Congress in Compensating Victims After a Catastrophic Nuclear Disaster," published in the journal Biosecurity and Bioterrorism.
