每日英語跟讀 Ep.K162: About generations - Gen-Z is now spending more than it did before the pandemic



 



OK boomer, you may have money, but you’re not spending it.



好啦,老人,你們或許有錢,但是你們不花錢。



Younger consumers, even though they have less saved than older Americans, are the ones opening their wallets as the U.S. economy recovers.



在美國經濟復甦之際,年輕一輩的消費者儘管存款比老一輩的人還少,卻是掏出荷包花錢的一群人。



Millennials and members of Generation Z are spending even more than they did before the pandemic as vaccines proliferate around the world, American Express Co. Chief Executive Officer Steve Squeri said during a virtual investor conference.



隨著疫苗在全球普及,千禧世代和Z世代現在比疫情前花更多錢,「美國運通」公司執行長史奎利在一場投資人視訊會議上說。



"We assumed there was such pent-up demand - not only for travel, but such a pent-up demand for consumer goods - that the U.S. recovery would be like it is right now," Squeri said.



「我們之前就推測會有這種被壓抑的潛在需求——不僅是對旅遊,也是對消費性商品的需求被壓抑——讓美國經濟復甦會如現在所見」,史奎利說。



"They’re at "125% spending of what their pre-Covid levels were in 2019."



「他們現在花的錢,是疫情前的2019年的125%。」

Harvard Study Suggests Millennials Have Given Up on Democracy 哈佛研究指出,千禧世代已放棄民主



Young people around the world are losing faith in democracy. A new Harvard study reveals that millennials in the United States and Europe do not think as highly about democracy as their parents do. In fact, many young people are willing to get rid of elections.



全世界的年輕人正對民主失去信心。一份哈佛新研究揭露,美國和歐洲的千禧世代不如他們的父母那樣看好民主。事實上,許多年輕人願意擺脫選舉。



The study, which appears in the Journal of Democracy, analyzed historical data on attitudes towards the government in North America, Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. What researchers found was a growing shift towards political radicalism in today’s youth. For example, millennials in the United States and Europe are more open to the idea of military coups than their parents.



這份刊登在《民主期刊》上的研究分析北美、西歐、澳洲和紐西蘭對於政府態度的歷史資料。研究人員發現,時下的年輕人逐漸轉向政治上的激進主義。例如,美國和歐洲的千禧世代比起他們的父母,對於軍事政變的觀念更加開放。



Only 19% of millennials in the U.S. believe that it would be illegitimate for the military to take over if the government were incompetent or failing to do its job. Meanwhile, only a third of US millennials believe civil rights are "absolutely essential" in a democracy.



美國千禧世代只有19%相信,如果政府無能或失敗,軍事接管是不合法的。另一方面,美國千禧世代僅有3分之1相信,公民權利在民主政治中是「絕對必要」。



When it comes to elections, more than a quarter of US millennials do not believe free elections are important to democracy. "They have become more cynical about the value of democracy as a political system." the researchers said.



論及選舉時, 美國千禧世代有超過4分之1不相信,自由選舉對民主政治是重要的。研究人員指出:「對於民主作為一套政治體系,他們對其價值變得更憤世嫉俗。」Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1457830; https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/1059155
