Exactly this.

Yeah. Say I'm a developer and I built a building last year worth $10M and I build another one this year. If I get a disaster that wipes them both out, that's $20M lost. If the same disaster had occurred a year ago, my losses would have been $10M, not $20M simply because I hadn't built the second building yet.
