what s the economic concept s mentioned in this poem
What’s the economic concept(S) mentioned in this poem?
  • “This is the beginning of a new day/God has given me this day to use as I will/I can waste it or use it for good/What I do today is very important because I am/Exchanging a day of my life for it/When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever/Leaving something in its place I have traded for it/I want it to be a gain, not loss — good, not evil/Success, not failure, in order that I/ Shall not forget the price I paid for it.” - Heartsill Wilson
