To cut money

Posted by Valeriy Lukinov on October 20, 2006

Please suggest a way to find a phrase matching a meaning. For example, in Russian there is an expression "to cut money" making a parallel to cutting fire-wood, that is, cutting off pieces of some common asset (primarily in a corrupt manner) as easy as to cut off pieces of fire-wood. How can I find an English equivalent?
Thanks you
