"Come to no good" = Dẫn đến một kết cục tệ hại; tương lai mù mịt hoặc không có vẻ khả quan lắm.

Ví dụ
"We were warning against playing the Kurdish card, as this can come to no good, of which we were also warned by our colleagues from other countries in the region having large Kurdish communities," Lavrov added.

As grown-ups everywhere have long suspected, poorly behaved 6-year-olds will come to no good. Or, at least not as much good as their more attentive, kinder and less aggressive peers (bạn đồng trang lứa).

His willingness to be austere (khắc khổ) in raising interest rates so high was because he knew dear money worked reliably in squeezing inflation (lạm phát)– not because he was an advocate of a hyper-free-market economy. He would be equally austere in resisting the siren (còi báo động) calls to deregulate (bãi bỏ quy định) finance in the name of freeing up the market. It would come to no good.
