I am wondering how to use correctly the expression 'better off'?
I was reading an article and I found the following expression:
If you need ...., you are better off implementing (= you are/will be in a better situation when/if you implement... ) ....
I understand the meaning of the sentence though I don't know the grammar rule.
Do you know how to use this expression correctly? Why the use of 'off'?
