My Quick Comment on Kudlow's Speech Today 快評库德洛今日演講

Larry Kudlow, National Economic Council Director , President Trump’s top advisor gave a speech on the US economy at the National Press Club today. Here is my quick take away from listening to him on site:

今天在美國國家記者俱樂部現場聽了美國國家經濟委員會主席庫德洛關於美國經濟的演講,最深的感想有二:

  1. He got the loudest applause (and only round of applause if my memory is correct) when he said “socialism is a loser”. 當他在演講中提到「社會主義已然失敗」時,現場響起了熱烈的(如果我沒記錯的話,也是唯一的一陣)掌聲,充分說明社會主義在現場聽衆中非常不得人心。

  2. He didn’t mention the trade war with China at all during his speech, (although he did answer a question about it later). To me, this means that the trade war with China is not that important to the US economy, or doesn’t affect the US economy that much, although the same war is deadly to the Chinese economy, and has pushed the Chinese Communist Party into a corner. 他在整個演講中隻字未提與中國的貿易戰(不過,後來提問環節有觀衆問到此問題,他回答了)。在我看來,這可以解讀爲,對美國經濟而言,與中共的貿易戰並不是那麼重要,因而在演講中可以略過不提。相反,對中共來說,這場貿易戰卻是致命的,而且已經將中共逼到牆角了。

    又:库德洛回答問題時說,對與中共的貿易談判持謹慎樂觀態度,並說關稅是個好東西,川普成功運用它將中共逼上了談判桌,這是以往各任總統未能做到的。他還說,他本人及他身邊的人從川普那裏學到很多談判技巧,以後還要繼續學習。
