Big money more than talk

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDITOR, Sir: ‘MONEY TALKS, BS walks’ is a pop­u­lar ex­pres­sion re­fer­ring to the un­de­ni­able in­flu­ence and power of the rich and su­per-rich, even in de­vel­oped democ­ra­cies.

But in analysing some re­cent and sig­nif­i­cant lo­cal and

in­ter­na­tional de­vel­op­ments, I am quite con­vinced that money is much more than talk and its in­flu­ence and power should never be un­der­es­ti­mated in any sphere of life.

The harsh re­al­ity is that big money, real big money, openly or se­cretly, does or gets what­ever it de­sires and leaves peo­ple to won­der and talk, or gripe and protest. True or false? DAIVE R. FACEY
