  • The question any large company must ask itself is not "Will we develop Adjustable Life?", but "How soon will we do it?"
  • Conventional whole life has been a good product for a long time, but in an era of inflation, changing lifestyles, and advanced computer technology, I do not see how we can deny the appropriateness of Adjustable Life.
