    the whole bag of tricks

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence? Yankee imperialism is using a whole bag of economical and political tricks to strengthen its grip in Latin America. (W. Foster, “Outline Political History of the Americas”)

    the whole bag of tricks = all ways and means

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
