Limiting his observations to
the life insurance field, Dr.
Blunchard said that social in
surance schemes, not only in the
U.S. but in other nutions as well,
are evidence that private initia
tive hus not done the job thut
the public wunts done.
As for the insurance compan
ies, Dr. Biunchurd had this ad
vice: "Private intit.utions should
consider themwjlves us part of
the general organization of the
public, permitted to administer
their own affairs because they
contribute to the generul good.
Too greut deluy in adopting ttiis
uttitude muy gradually transform
them into governmental units."
As a result. Dr. Ulunchurd
pointed out, insurunce is a highly
sensitive system whose greutest
threuts ure taxes and inflation.
Tuxes reduce income, he suid,
and inflution lowers the ef
ficiency of income.
