Big money more than talk

Published:Monday | November 14, 2016 | 11:00 AM

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?
