    Description:

    A recent report suggests that for every $1 spent on natural hazard mitigation measures for homes and businesses, society will on average benefit $6 in avoided direct and direct losses. As the political will is generally lacking to mandate and enforce building code revisions that would require owners in earthquake and hurricane zones to make such investments, these considerable economic and societal benefits will only be realized by discovering what would persuade building owners, and especial…

    Abstract:

    The 2020 election has the potential to be one of the most momentous in modern American history. Challenges to the integrity of the electoral process, threats of violence from extremist groups, and most alarmingly, President Donald Trump’s repeated refusal to guarantee a peaceful power transfer should he lose have created a climate of uncertainty about the election and its aftermath, with worrisome implications for the long-term health of American democracy.

    While these circumstances are unpr…
