'A fast (or quick) buck' nghĩa là đồng tiền dễ kiếm (easily and quickly earned money).

Ví dụ
The pursuit of a fast buck is the cause of most losses.

Beware of so-called 'tax preparers' out to make a quick buck.

There is plenty of blame to go around—from failed political leadership to vulture hedge-fund managers who sought to make a quick buck on the backs of others’ suffering.

Moral issues are no longer important. Almost everybody is looking for an easy way, perhaps to make a quick buck or even break all the ethical codes to get things done. From individuals to big businesses, when the opportunity prevails, only few saintly souls can walk away from the temptations of filling their pockets from unmerited cash.
