Gatsby, aware that Nick may be in a tough financial situation, offers to "set him up in business" so that he can make some money. He is evasive about what kind of business this might be, however.
Gatsby offers Nick a job in his "business" or quote on quote "set him up in the business." Gatsby does this because he knows Nick is not the most wealthiest so he thinks buying his cooperation would be the best thing. However Nick some what sees through it and does not take Gatsby on the offer.
