短语 money talks 的意思就是“有钱能使鬼推磨“。注意这个短语带有一些负面含义。
A: I don’t know how he got into university. He’s not very clever.
B: Didn’t you know? His dad’s a millionaire. He paid for the new library. Money talks.
I don’t want to say that money talks, but it certainly helps if you want to get something done quickly in this country.
请注意：另一个英语表达 money is no object 的意思是“钱不是问题“。
I'm taking you out for a meal on your birthday, my treat. Where do you want to go? Money is no object.
A: If money were no object, what car would you have?
B: A Ferrari, definitely!
