Because we pay nothing other than the cost of GTA V single player, Rockstar is making the game Pay to Win by selling players in game cash for real life money. This means that unless you drop some real world cash you will find it extremely hard to get things.
f*cking thanks Rockstar.
"Cash is king in this town. Solve your money problems and help get what you want across Los Santos and Blaine County with the purchase of cash packs for Grand Theft Auto Online. All purchased cash is automatically deposited into your characters bank account. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting."
Basically the reason money is so hard to make is to encourage the purchase of ingame cash with real life money.
f*cking Rockstar knew this would be hated so they tried to hide it so we would buy the game without realizing we get shafted for the Pay to Win online that has all the features that were taken from the single player aspect of the game.

Grinding in Planetside 2 for literally almost nothing was the worst gaming experience i have ever had and I'm glad Rockstar can provide me with this awful experience for GTA Online.
I can't wait to have unbalanced microtransactions and dumping over $60 dollars in Online to partially enjoy the game.
"did you see the reddit link where fingerless gloves for GTA V are DLC and gp for $3'"
We all have read some comments in the subreddit about it's quite hard making money in the game, properties are not very profitable, and the missions that affect the stock market seem to be too few and too early.
I think I might have found why. When you open the store section in the pause menu, it says there is nothing available yet, but the console requests this file.
It's a plain XML file where you will see that besides of the downlodable content from the special editions, there are 4 so-called "cash cards", ranging from $100,000 to $1,250,000.
- Mirror of the file in case it goes down or changes
- Images of the cards referenced in the file (converted from DDS format)
I may be wrong and I sincerely hope I am, but to me this looks like the explanation of why it's so hard to make money in the game: at some point (when GTAO starts?) you're supposed to buy game money with real money
This seems very un-Rockstar-y to me, so I want to believe there are other plausible explanations:
- It's just a test, since it was not supposed to be public. Maybe something used internally?
- They are redeemable items, not something you buy with real money. Maybe the prizes of some Social Club sweepstakes?
tl;dr: making money is hard because you're supposed to buy game money with real money at some point"
