    I did the research on cordless systems recently and apparently the power edge goes to DeWalt and the compatibility to Milwaukee.

    Actually the business is investing properly to make money off the float from premium->accident. Most insurance companies run somewhat close to even otherwise. There's actually no real money (over the...

    Also note that your pricing is not based on paying out 10k on a 2k car. If you want that, plenty of stated value policies from specialty lines.
