Meyer Wolfsheim and Gatsby are associated through their business affairs. Wolfsheim is clearly involved in the 'rackets' (illegal business deals) a is also a gambler. A great glimpse of his personality is evident in the luncheon meeting between Gatsby, Carraway and Wolfsheim. Wolfsheim boosts of the human teeth he has turned into cufflinks, indicating his type of business is somehow less than honest.
