美國新冠疫情日記5/19 Political Wrestling And Economic Recovery


    Political Wrestling And Economic Recovery

Congress passed the Heroes Act last Friday which includes $3 billion in funding to help local and state governments and other relief projects. This bill currently is in the U.S. Senate awaiting final approval. As speaker Pelosi said, we just can’t wait, but most of senators do not agree to give one billion dollars to local and state governments. This is mostly because many of the state governments are in the hands of the Democrats.


The Federal Reserve Bank chairman has urged the federal government to take the most effective way to help local governments and private businesses to control the pandemic. Hopefully, this may mean we can expect an economic rebound soon.


The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are warning the world that each country needs to come up with a recovery plan to rescue their failing economies.  Today, Japan and India both have developed huge recovery plans that include cash handouts to all their citizens.


The Coronavirus pandemic is the largest global issue today. We think the world economy is also a huge global issue.  We have arrived at a time when we are all dependent on each other. Today, the two economic superpowers, China and the United States, are fighting about economic issues and military conflict in the South China Sea. 


We urge both nations to not misjudge each other. The world needs peace and we don’t want to see these conflicts bring another catastrophe to the globe.



     經濟復甦和政治角力

上週五在民主黨主控的衆議院通過了叁兆美金之英雄經濟方案,目前正等待在共和黨控制之參議院手中衆議院議長佩洛西說我們無法等待因爲疫情之蔓延是不等待我們的。”共和黨對于提案中將會給予各州及地方政府一兆美元之資助不同意因爲州及地方政府多半是民主黨在執政。

中央銀行總裁鮑爾今天再度呼籲聯邦政府必須伸出援手,才能拯救全國經濟的復甦,他預期如果在疫情可控的情況下美國經濟可望下半年反彈。

世界銀行及國際貨幣基金會同時向全球發出嚴重警告希望世界各國推出有效及充裕之纾困方案,來挽救受到新冠病毒之嚴重傷害的經濟,諸如日本印度等經濟大國已經釋出龐大預算拯救私人企業並向國民發放現金。

我們認爲各國在紛紛推出自已之經濟纾困案,也許解決一時之困境但全球之困難不可能得到解決,今天世界之局勢充滿變數中美兩大經濟體從關稅貿易疫情爭端南海對峙台灣問題正在世界政治之大舞台進行角力我們呼籲雙方不可誤判局勢,造成軍事沖突,給世界帶來毀滅性的災難。
