Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Buzz’ll be able to pass the buck for not creating any real relief for poverty.
pass the buck = pin the responsibility on another
May I set out in search of the etymology of the phrase in question at the following meaning of the word “buck” , namely “buck = chip indicating who donate “ (Poker)?
Thanks for your efforts.
