    "pocket change"

    I'm not quite sure about the meaning of "pochet change" in the sentence :
    "The boom has slashed unemployment ,doubled the country's wealth,and
    taken care of all but pocket change on its debt."

    A very small and insignificant amount of money, like the loose change in your pocket.
