English term or phrase: the money pointed
Когда Рузвельт стал проводить свой новый курс, многие университетские преподаватели экономики полевели. As post-Reagan, post-Thatcher electorates turned right, follow the money pointed, alas, only in one direction. So to speak, we eat our cookings.

Мы идем только в том направлении, которое указывают деньги?

Explanation:
Я нашла отрывок побольше:

I conclude with an unworthy hypothesis regarding past and present directions of economic research. Sherlock Holmes said, “Cherchez la femme.” ****When asked why he robbed banks, Willie Sutton replied, “That’s where the money is.” ****We economists do primarily work for our peers’ esteem, which figures in our own self-esteem. When post-Depression Roosevelt’s New Deal provided exciting job opportunities, first the junior academic faculties moved leftward. To get back ahead of their followers, subsequently the senior academic faculties shoved ahead of them. As post-Reagan, post-Thatcher electorates turned rightward, follow the money pointed, alas, in only one direction. So to speak, we eat our own cooking.
