Hello,

I have a question regarding this saying. Is it correct to just replace “mens” with “oeconomia” in order to say a healthy economy in a healthy body?

Oeconomia sana in corpore sano

    I'm not sure about what the phrase "a healthy economy in a healthy body" would mean.
    However the main sense of "oeconomia" was "household management". The current sense of "resources and wealth of a country" is from the 1650s.
