    Here you are different meanings of the noun "cut" that has something to do with finances:
    - a share of the profits: "everyone got a cut of the earnings";
    - the act of cutting something into parts;
    - the act of reducing or decreasing something...


    I think it must be on the context of the sentence where you can find the meaning of it.
  • Thanks for your help, Ixtap, but I realised afterwards that my question was wrong in the 1st place. On reading the text that baffled me, I got it all wrong, I should have understood: “to cut spendings” (which makes sense) instead of “to spend cuts”. Strange how some very obvious things never occur to you when you are trying hard to figure them out!
    The blame is on the English language which is so plastic as compared with our structured language and somewhat stiff minds (speaking for myself…).
