"Money-grubber" nghĩa là gì?

'Money-grubber' có từ grub (+ about) là tìm kiếm một cách cần cù, siêng năng, vì thế từ này nghĩa là người xoay xở làm giàu, kẻ bo bo giữ tiền (someone who is obsessed with making as much money as possible).

Ví dụ
Mitt Romney is a self righteous (tự cao tự đại), self deceived (tự dối mình), progressive, power hungry, money grubber.

With Dario looking like a money grubber and Eduardo's assassin (kẻ ám sát) secret out, anything can happen.

This article edifies (khai trí, soi sáng) the money grubber side of music, as does HBOs latest effort , "Vinyl" which also attempts to rewrite history.

Opponents battled furiously (hung hăng, dữ dội) against that proposition in part because the developer, Lucius Jones, is seen as a money-grubber who’s only out to make a dollar.
