保持乐观:2010年金融界的十大预言
来源: 沪江英语 作者: 2010-01-11 09:53:03

  要搞错了,我们可不吃玛雅人那一套,要把2012的种种给你搬过来。这里的语言由华尔街预言家Evan Newmark发出,预测了2010年全球金融界都会发生哪些大事。

  I said it last year - and I'll say it again. There is only one activity more thankless than predicting the future - and that is publicly sharing your predictions。

  我去年就说过今年要再强调的一点是:唯一比预测未来更不招人待见的事情就是公开自己的预言。

  Judge for yourself. Click here and here to review my predictions from the past year。

  判断权在你手里。点击这里可以看到去年此时我对2009年的预言。

  Meanwhile, it's onto 2010:

  现在,我们来说说2010年。

  AIG CEO Robert Benmosche will be voted CEO of the Year。

  美国国际集团首席执行长本默切将当选年度CEO。

  Benmosche's abrasive

  morale-building exercise at AIG will take hold. The U.S. pay czar willgive Benmosche leeway on pay. And a continuing rebound in the marketswill give AIG a shot at repaying a good chunk of taxpayer money。

  本默切重振公司士气的艰苦努力将取得回报。美国“薪酬沙皇”将对他网开一面。而且各个市场的持续回暖将令公司有机会偿还一大笔美国纳税人的救助资金。

  Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman will do an about-face on the bank's 'lower risk' corporate strategy。

  摩根士丹利首席执行长戈尔曼将给该行所谓“降低风险”的策略来个大掉头。

  About now, new CEO Gorman is probably learning that the meager profitsof a retail brokerage can't pay for all those monster Wall Streetbonuses. Expect Gorman to decide that Morgan Stanley should be a lotmore like trader Goldman Sachs, after all。

  眼下,这位大摩新掌门或许意识到了来自零售经纪业务的微薄盈利还不够华尔街薪酬的血盆大口塞牙缝。预计戈尔曼会决定最终要向交易商高盛看齐。

  Goldman Sachs will pay out big bonuses, be publicly vilified for a month and then go quietly back to printing profits。

  高盛将大派红包,饱受各方抨击一个月,然后静悄悄地干回自己的老本行--挣钱。

  The U.S. Congress and the media will go berserk when Goldman announces the size of its 2009 bonus pool. But the outrage will be brief and of little lasting consequence. The 'hate Goldman Sachs' story has been running just too long。

  估计当高盛公布自己2009年的奖金规模时,美国国会和媒体又会气得抓狂。但这些怨气终将只是过眼云烟,改变不了什么。所谓“高盛招人恨”的故事实在是拖得太长了。

  The GM turnaround will drag on. Forget a 2010 IPO。

  通用汽车咸鱼翻身不易,2010年举行首次公开募股一事就别惦记了。

  GM is addicted to hefty sales incentivesto move the cars and new CEO Ed Whitacre knows it. In 2010, he willslash incentives and end up abandoning GM's 20% U.S. market sharetarget to find profitability. The search will prove elusive。

  通用汽车现在已经对挥泪大促销上瘾,新首席执行长惠塔克里对此心知肚明。他将在2010年取消一些购买刺激措施,以放弃全美20%市场占有率目标的方式来谋求重获盈利能力。这番求索注定是前路艰难。

  Fiat will seek to renegotiate the terms of its investment in Chrysler。

  菲亚特试图就投资克莱斯勒条款重新谈判。

  With Chrysler's market share in a death spiral, Fiat will finally grasp

  that this dud is exactly that - a dud. By autumn, Fiat will threaten towalk away from Chrysler unless the UAW and U.S. taxpayer offer up evenmore concessions。

  眼见克莱斯勒的市场份额呈现死亡式螺旋下降,菲亚特会最终认识到这个不中用的公司还真就是不中用了。预计菲亚特会在8月前扬言彻底和克莱斯勒分道扬镳,除非全美汽车工人联合和美国纳税人作出更多让步。

  Washington's twin-obsessions in election year 2010 will be to create jobs and cut the deficit. Little will be accomplished on either count。

  创造就业和削减赤字将成为华盛顿在2010年选举之年的孪生执念。不过,这两样一个都成不了现实。

  Congress will authorize billions more in stimulus that won't be called 'stimulus'and won't actually create jobs. And Congress will convene a bi-partisandeficit cutting commission that won't do much either. Until investorsstop buying US Treasurys, why should Congress change its ways?

  国会将批准追加数十亿美元的刺激资金,但不会冠以“刺激”之名,也不会真正创造什么就业机会。国会将联合两党成立一个削减赤字的委员会,但同样发挥不了什么作用。既然美国国债还有投资者买,国会为什么要改弦更张?

  The story of the year will be the New York City trial of Khalid Sheik Mohammed。

  年度故事将是纽约对911主谋穆罕默德的审判。

  The OJ Simpson trial proved that nothing gets the masses as excited as murder and celebrity.Throw in Flight 253 and the ambitions of dozens of terrorists, triallawyers, prosecutors, politicians and aggrieved 9-11 families and youhave a story that will run and run。

  当年辛普森杀妻案的审判就说明,再也没什么能比谋杀和名人的组合更能引发公众的集体亢奋了。再加上253号班机爆炸未遂案、几十个恐怖分子、审判律师、公诉人、政客以及911遇难者家属的激动情绪,足够在你面前上演一出长得如同滔滔江水延绵不绝的连续剧。

  Finalpredictions: Weak economic growth will continue into 2010. By spring,the Obama White House will be forced to the political center and U.S.businesses will finally believe in a modest recovery。

  最后的预言:疲软的经济增长将延续至2010年。在春天前,奥巴马的白宫都不得不扮演美国政治中心的角色,美国商业界也终于开始相信会出现温和复苏。

  Here is my best guess - and that's all it is - for how the U.S. economy and markets will look in 2010:

  下面是我对2010年美国经济以及市场前景最乐观也是最终的猜测。

  2010 U.S. unemployment rate (average): 10.2%

  2010年美国平均失业率:10.2%。

  2010 S&P 500 index (year-end): 1300

  2010年标准普尔500指数年终收盘报:1300点。

  2010 10-year Treasury yield (year-end): 5.0%

  2010年10年期美国国债收益率年终收盘报:5.0%。
