According to Investopedia, “Easy Money is defined as money that has easily been acquired.” Well this easily links with the South African daily life. Everyone’s dream is to become a millionaire or billionaire but this can only be done if the correct procedures are followed such as: working or providing a service in order to obtain this “money”.
My definition of Easy Money is crime, crime and more crime. People in this day and age look for any excuse or any attempt to obtain money and in this process, doing anything and everything in order to get that “money”. Well in South Africa and in the rest of the world money is a status symbol and many South African don’t have access to money and therefore they resort to all kinds of crimes.
Crimes such as: ATM Bombings, Minting and Printing of the South African currency, stealing copper cabling and wires, buying and selling drugs and stealing vehicles. The destruction of other people’s, lives in order to make their’s a bit better. These criminals should think about the bigger picture because there destruction leads to more money being spent and inconveniences to other. Easy money gets you nowhere!
