This quotation is from the musical play "Cabaret" that was written in the 1960's. It starred Joel Gray and Liza Minnelli, and was a bitter commentary on Berlin in the 1930's just before World War 2. This particular quotation is a song in this play.

Since the play is dark and rather melancholy, This song had to do with the female lead's wistful wish for love. The male protagonist replied with this line leading into the song. The gist of the song is that money is the whole reason that the world keeps turning. Not love, not nobility, not even reproduction...just money.

The play was a huge hit, was made into a movie, and is available on CD.

It means that our society relies heavily on money. As in it is a factor in modern society's ability to function.

BECAUSE WITHOUT MONEY THERE WOULD BE NO ORDER
