My mom would say

In God we trust, the rest pay cash.

As a kid I did not understand what she said or meant.

As an adult, now, watching the global fiasco unfold over lending and borrowing, I now understand.

Do others?

Kinda like Whimpy on the Popeye cartoons, for a hambuger today I will pay you on Tuesday.

Tuesday is here and we can’t pay for what we borrowed, so the solution, do the same as we always have, borrow and spend, to buy more and borrow more to spend more.
