    has a corollary

    Dear all,

    How should I understand "has a corollary" underlined in the sentence below?

    Thanks in advance.

    The maxim that it takes money to make money has a corollary: Without money, you canít make money. One exception to the corollary is the stock market. If youíre willing to gamble, you can make money by borrowing from someone else. But, of course, you can lose money the same way ó and lots of it. In this section, I explore the role the stock market can play in exacerbating an economic downturn.

    To have a corollary is to imply something immediately. The corollary is that implied something.
