What does the phrase "vote with dollars" mean?

It’s a new way of thinking about spending. Consider every dollar you spend as a way you are showing an opinion; by buying an item, you’re showing you consider it worth purchasing. When you buy a coffee, you’re more than just purchasing a hot beverage; you’re showing your support for that single business location, for the coffee industry, and for the convenience of having coffee shops. By spending money on the things you believe are important, you can show that you support those things. The same is true for recreation facilities or for the non-profits you choose to volunteer for; your actions show what you deem important.
