A law and economics perspective requires the maximum variant of damage compensation for a correct internalization of the earthquake costs. After all, victims were unable to take measures to limit this damage. Firstly, this means that all relevant future earthquake costs must be reimbursed. Secondly, this creates an economically correct incentive for parties involved in extraction and exploitation to take the total social costs into account. Thirdly, this form of compensation sends the important signal to citizens that they know their interests will be respected. Although damage compensation policy has improved in recent years, there is still no economically required maximum variant of compensation yet.
