…because I’m an economist and a mom–that’s why!

A Memorial Day Weekend Analogy

May 23rd, 2008 . by economistmom

So let me add a quick “Mom” perspective to my earlier, clearly “economist” post, below (on the Ryan plan)

Suppose I’d love to go out to Arizona this weekend.  I hear Sedona is really lovely this time of year (as well as the place to be this weekend if one wants to bump into Senator McCain or any of his VP hopefuls)…

I haven’t made any plans– don’t know if I’d fly there, drive there, walk there!…  

But I know I’d have an absolutely fabulous time once I got there–why, the benefits would be huge…

Does this mean my trip would be worthwhile (”pass the cost-benefit test”), no matter which way I choose to get there, and no matter what the cost?

EconomistMom says:   I think not.

Anyway, I’m staying home.  (Our family’s Sedona trip is in late June!)
