The website http://www.onethousandthings.net was launched today. This website provides consumers with helpful information about life insurance, travel insurance, and auto insurance. Insurance can be a difficult concept to understand. It's a product that most consumers buy, but few want to use. You can't see it, touch it, smell it, hear it or taste it. But without it, the world would be a much different place. Would you casually drive to the grocery store knowing that everything you ever worked for could be at risk if you were involved in an accident? How much would you be willing to spend on a home without insurance to cover it? Who would dare start a new business without the safety net of insurance? Insurance allows people to take risks, make investments, protect their hard-earned assets and provides peace of mind. Insurance and other risk management techniques have been around in some form for thousands of years.
Insurance has its roots in ancient China. Shipping merchants in 2500 B.C. were the first to introduce a concept vital to the role and purpose of insurance -- spreading the risk of loss from the individual to a group of individuals. Before sailing through dangerous waters, merchants gathered and divided their goods so that each boat carried some of the contents of the others. That way no one merchant shouldered the risk alone, protecting themselves from a potential total loss of goods. Today's insurance business still bases its practices on this simple concept of spreading risk.
One thousand things.net explains in detail the difference between term and permanent life insurance, and how they compare financially. It also explains the benefits of travel insurance, and why travel insurance can be a good choice for frequent travelers.
