Insured and Assured Metropolitan policyholders — including about one^ftfth of the total populations of United States and Canada— have built up their reserves from millions into billions. THE financial story below is a record of achievement by men and women who are planning to avert want or to build estates. You may admire their steadfastness of purpose last year under handicaps which tested courage. These people-policyholders of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company—are building for their future. They would like to know what the future holds in store for them and for the country as a whole. Let them, and other citizens, examine any chart of our country’s unparalleled prosperity over the past hundred years. It appears, not merely as a jagged line, but as a series of towering steps which rise steadily onward and upward. It is heartening now to recall that, after each depression, our country has always gone forward to greater heights of prosperity and better, sounder standards of living. Today this country has more riches and better facilities than ever before with which to commence her next great period of development. A review of the financial history of the United States since it was founded in 1783 should turn any pessimist into an optimist The Metropolitan will gladly mail, free, a book let, “The Development of Prosperity in America”, telling of past ups and downs—and ups again— and how soon the “ups” followed.
