Recording Two
 Questions 19 to 22 are based on the recording you have just heard.
1.[單選題]______
  • A.Pay back their loans to the American government.
  • B.Provide loans to those in severe financial difficulty.
  • C.Contribute more to the goal of a wider recovery.
  • D.Speed up their recovery from the housing bubble.
  • 解題思路:錄音一開始提到,在美國政府和納稅人的幫助下,美國銀行業得以復蘇,總統奧巴馬說銀行是時候要作出回報了:現在銀行更有義務去完成更大范圍的經濟復蘇這一目標。C 項與錄音相符。
2.[單選題]______
  • A.It won't help the American economy to turn around.
  • B.It won't do any good to the major commercial banks.
  • C.It will win the approval of the Obama administration.
  • D.It will be necessary if the economy starts to shrink again.
  • 解題思路:錄音最后提到,如果美國經濟再次開始下滑,Baily 認為應該有充分的理由二度刺激經濟,因此 D 項正確。
3.[單選題]______
  • A.Some banks may have to merge with others.
  • B.Many smaller regional banks are going to fail.
  • C.It will be hard for banks to provide more loans.
  • D.Many banks will have to lay off some employees.
  • 解題思路:錄音提到,經濟學家 Martin Neil Baily 認為銀行業危機并沒有結束,在 2009 年已經有 130 多家美國銀行倒閉,預計在 2010 年會有更多規模小的地區性銀行面臨倒閉,原因是商業地產貸款將到期,B 項與之相符。
4.[單選題]______
  • A.It will work closely with the government.
  • B.It will endeavor to write off bad loans.
  • C.It will try to lower the interest rate.
  • D.It will try to provide more loans.
  • 解題思路:在銀行的問題上,Richard Davis 比一些經濟專家更樂觀,他說借貸就好像煤炭對于引擎的作用一樣,所以我們要放出更多的貸款。D 項中 provide more loans 是錄音中 make more loans 的同義轉換,故為正確答案。

    錄音原文:
      As U.S. banks recovered with the help of American government and the American taxpayers, president Obama held meetings with top bank executives, telling them it’s time to return the favor. “The way I see it are banks now having a greater obligation to the goal of a wide recovery,” he said. But the president may be giving the financial sector too much credit. “It was in a free fall, and it was a very scary period.” Economist Martin Neil Baily said. After the failure of Lehman Brothers, many of the world’s largest banks feared the worst as the collapse of the housing bubble exposed in investments in risky loans.

      Although he says the worst is just over, Bailey says the banking crisis is not. More than 130 US banks failed in 2009. He predicts high failure rates for smaller, regional banks in 2010 as commercial real estate loans come due.
      "So there may actually be a worsening of credit availability to small and medium sized businesses in the next year or so."
       Analysts say the biggest problem is high unemployment, which weakens demand and makes banks reluctant to lend. But US Bankcorp chief Richard Davis sees the situation differently.
     "We're probably more optimistic than the experts might be.
    With that in mind, we're putting everything we can, lending is the coal to our engine, so we want to make more loans. We have to find a way to qualify more people and not put ourselves at risk."
    While some economists predict continued recovery in the future, Baily says the only certainty is that banks are unlikely to make the same mistakes - twice. "You know, forecasting's become a very hazardous business so I don't want to commit myself too much. I don't think we know exactly what's going to happen but it's certainly possible that we could get very slow growth over the next year or two.”
      If the economy starts to shrink again, Baily says it would make a strong case for a second stimulus -- something the Obama administration hopes will not be necessary.

    Q19. What dose President Obama hope the banks will do?
    Q20. What is Martin Neil Baily’s prediction about the financial situation in the future?
    Q21. What does U.S. Bankcorp chief Richard Davis say about its future operation?
    Q22. What does Martin Neil Baily think of a second stimulus to the economy?
