Name one advantage of each type over the other one. Name one piece of additional information you’d like about the person to be insured to help make the decision. Please feel free to use Exhibits 8.2 and 8.3 in the textbook to help you answer the question (3 points). 3. Suppose the family is now contemplating purchasing a term life insurance policy versus a whole life insurance policy for the husband. Given that the family places a high value on building wealth over time, which policy should they choose? Name one disadvantage of choosing this type of life insurance policy over the other type (2 points). 4. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of The Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare,” is the requirement that everyone carry health insurance. Proponents of the act argue that this provision must be in place to avoid adverse selection, especially based on another characteristic of the legislation which states that health insurance policies cannot refuse people due to pre-existing health conditions. Define adverse selection and apply this concept to the above argument (2 points).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
