"There is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen.
Yet this difference is tremendous; for it almost always happens that when the immediate consequence is favorable, the later consequences are disastrous, and vice versa. Whence it follows that the bad economist pursues a small present good that will be followed by a great evil to come, while the good economist pursues a great good to come, at the risk of a small present evil".It seem like we will have a little peace at first, but what about the debt in the future. How long do we keep passing our national debt to our children, who will follow our example and pass the burden on to our grandchildren? I have much to learn about this. It almost seems to heavy. Yet I have to keep trying to understand and learn from the experiences.

A few blog entries ago I said something about the greatness of womanhood. I received a comment that has had me thinking. Did I mean greatness? It certainly sounded good when I said it.
This morning I had a sudden thought that I might mean goodness of womanhood and that I should seek out the origin of both words, greatness and goodness.My search didn't turn up something profound which I was hoping for.
I must add a little of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. This is Malvalio talking to Fabian.
“A woman’s richest rewards will come as she rises to fulfill her destiny as a devoted daughter of God. To all faithful Saints He has promised thrones, kingdoms, principalities, glory, immortality, and eternal lives. (See Rom. 2:7; D&C 75:5; 128:12, 23; 132:19.) That is the potential for women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is exalting, everlasting, and divine” (“Woman—Of Infinite Worth,” Ensign, Nov. 1989, 22).
“Oh, that every girl and woman would have a testimony of her potential for eternal motherhood. … Female roles did not begin on earth, and they do not end here. A woman who treasures motherhood on earth will treasure motherhood in the world to come, and ‘where [her] treasure is, there will [her] heart be also’ (Matthew 6:21). By developing a mother heart, each girl and woman prepares for her divine, eternal mission of motherhood” (“A ‘Mother Heart,’ ” Liahona and Ensign, May 2004, 76).
