money makes the world go around

money makes the world go around

cliché Money is of critical importance to the ordinary operation of one's life or the world at large. You may not like capitalism, but it's an unavoidable truth that money makes the world go round. I wish I didn't have to work this boring 9–5 job, but money makes the world go round and my art just doesn't pay the bills.
