About American Economy

 

I feel the urge to write about the current American economy, not that I have a degree in Economics, but that I am in the financial industry, facing an impact that I can no longer ignore. 

 

Headlines such as Citigroup with layoffs of 50,000 people and the like reported everyday make people feel so unsettling.  You never know when you will be the next.  In addition, the security that you have built up for so many years have suddenly all gone in drains.

 

Latest headline news as of 12/5/08, skittish employers slashed 533,000 jobs in November, the most in 34 years, catapulting the unemployment rate to 6.7 percent, dramatic proof the country is careening deeper into recession.  (from Associate Press)

 

This is a really shocking figure - 533,000 people losing jobs.  It is just the beginning.  It is not easy not to feel depressed with the entire economic situation.  No one is exempt from guillotine.  I am sorry to use this strong word, but it portrays how I feel.

 

Anyway, if worse comes to shove, I may apply for a teacher license and switch careers.

  • 有許多企業家總是依老賣老,以為跟政府關係不錯或者本身是歷史悠久的大集團,心態高傲的認為政府不會見死不救!杆桿越玩越大,無腦的認為風險有政府扛著,然而結果出其然!應聲倒閉,起連鎖效應,造成金融風暴。這次的金融風暴橫掃全球並在四處蔓延絲毫沒有減弱或停止的跡象,大多數的人都無端被捲入這場風波,裁員、無薪假和減薪等等,舉凡可以減少公司支出的手段紛紛出籠,然而苦的是受薪階級,當然boss亦是有苦難言。美國是大多數國家仰賴的經濟命脈,而新任總統歐巴馬是美國人民現在所倚靠的對象,許多國家也都期盼著美國經濟能早日復甦進而活絡彼此,這種情況讓歐巴馬變成''全民''的希望,全球都關注著歐巴馬能夠有所作為,我也希望他能夠!這次的情況再次顯示出,人為的災害影響遠大於天然所為,這將會在歷史上重重畫上一筆,並將不斷地告誡世人。
