    As an example: you give a homeless family food and shelter -- that solves the immediate problem. But you also find someone in the family a job, which solves the problem longer-term and keeps the immediate problem from recurring over and over. They are not mutually exclusive. You combine A with B, as NoAgenda says.

    As soon problem occurs it should be solved while solution itself should be investment and as such last as long as possible.
