Money Geek featured Lubin Professor P.V. Viswanath in "The Best Cheap Car Insurance for College and High School Students on a Budget"

How should students decide what level of auto insurance to purchase?

This decision will differ depending upon whether the student is paying for the insurance or not. If the student is paying for it, how able is s/he to absorb large payments if a low level of insurance is initially purchased? How careful a driver is the student? If the answer to the first question is that the student does have (parental or other) liquid resources to dip into and the answer to the second question is that s/he is a careful driver, it may be possible to initially buy a lower level of insurance.

What factors should students consider when deciding whether to bring their car to campus or keep it at home?

If the car is kept at home and the student therefore requires frequent travel over longer distances, the cost of insurance will be higher. On the other hand, it may be that chances of risk/theft are higher on a campus.

Money Geek featured Lubin Professor P.V. Viswanath in "The Best Cheap Insurance for Teens in 2021"

Money Geek featured Lubin Professor P.V. Viswanath in "The Best Cheap Insurance for Teens in 2021"

What features should teens and parents look for when shopping for a car, and how will this impact car insurance rates?

They should look at how easy it is for the student to get insurance on his own (assuming they are now including the student in their own insurance). Even though the initial increase in premium may be high, what is the procedure by which the risk will be re-evaluated?

How can parents and teens budget for the extra expense of car insurance?

It’s important to look at whether the new car is required and if so, what the benefits are relative to the costs. Perhaps start with putting money aside into a savings account that will eventually be used to pay for the car insurance when the car is eventually bought.

We recently corresponded with Edmund H. Mantell, Ph.D., a consulting economist that works with injury attorneys to assess and quantify economic damages sustained by their injured clients. Dr. Mantell’s expertise in this area spans the business and academic worlds. A noted thought leader and trial witness, his insight is a must-read for Connecticut injured people and their attorneys.

The Verge featured Lubin Professor Jessica Magaldi in "A federal ‘revenge porn’ ban could transform online harassment laws"

The Verge featured Lubin Professor Jessica Magaldi in "A federal ‘revenge porn’ ban could transform online harassment laws"

Jessica Magaldi, a Pace University law professor who published a review of “revenge porn” statutes last year, says that’s a relatively rare approach that she’d like to see adopted more broadly. “I would say many of the states are misguided in their attempts,” she says. “They are overly concerned with the intent of the perpetrator.”

WalletHub featured Lubin Professor Andrew Coggins in "Ask the Experts: Best Hotel Credit Cards"

WalletHub featured Lubin Professor Andrew Coggins in "Ask the Experts: Best Hotel Credit Cards"

Even the best hotel credit cards usually aren’t among the best or most popular cards overall - why do you think that is?

I think for most people plane trips are valued much more than free hotel nights. More thought goes into booking a flight than a hotel. You are going somewhere and need a hotel, so you book it as opposed to flying somewhere when you will try to earn FF miles and pay more attention to schedule and choices.

Who should get a hotel rewards credit card? If you travel a lot and spend many nights with one hotel chain it might be worthwhile. Is there a minimum number of nights a person should spend in hotels per year to justify getting one?

If you are in the elite frequent guest category it might be worthwhile.

How much is flexibility worth when it comes to credit cards and travel rewards?

It all depends on one's degree of loyalty to a particular hotel brand if you are very loyal flexibility will not matter much as you will first look to book with your preferred brand. For example, how much more does a branded hotel credit card need to offer to be a better deal than a card with rewards that are good for travel at any hotel? The ability to transfer points/miles to partner airline(s) and rent-a-cars and non-expiring points.

What are the most important things to watch out for with hotel rewards?

Points that do not expire. Several years ago my wife and daughter were able to spend a week at the Maui Marriott for our niece's wedding for under $100 by using points that I had accumulated over the years. Even if you do not spend many but some nights in a hotel each year they add up.
