Assunto:  I wish I had much...
 
Mensagem: 

Yes, it is. Once money is an uncountable noun MUCH means  pretty  much the same as A LOT OF in this construction. I´d rather use A LOT OF instead. With MORE the sentence would have another meaning.

much (mŭch)

adj. more (môr, mōr), most (mōst)
Great in quantity, degree, or extent: not much rain; much affection.
n.
1. A large quantity or amount: Much has been written.
