Today, I will focus on one major impact of the current financial crisis on Asia-Pacific, that is, the decline in domestic demand. Particularly, I want to talk about the factors leading to declines in domestic demand.

Equity markers in developing countries around the world have suffered large decreases in value since mid-September 2008, reflecting a global credit crunch and a worldwide flight to safety among investors.

These declines are expected to cause a number of effects that will dampen domestic demand, especially personal consumption and corporate investments. Although equity market investments only constitute a small percentage of overall household wealth and equity financing consists of relatively a small portion of corporate investment in Asia-Pacific as compared with developed countries, the declines will affect the more advanced economies of the region, such as the Republic of Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong of China.

Secondly, declines in property markets will further dampen domestic demand. The reduction in housing prices will have an effect on real estate investments, which have played a particularly important role in the growth of domestic demand in a number of countries—most notably in China, where the property sector accounts for about one quarter of all investment.

Private consumption will also be affected by the fall in property prices, particularly in the more advanced economies in the region, where property assets account for a more significant portion of household wealth.

Thirdly, reduced bank lending is the most significant factor curtailing corporate activity and domestic demand.

The concern here is that an increase in non-performing loans will result in greater restraints on and a reduction in new lending, leading to possible higher costs for new borrowers. Increased borrowing costs may in turn add further pressures resulting in a greater number of corporate defaults.

参考译文:今天我主要谈一下内需下降的问题这是此次亚太地区金融危机带来的主要影响。我主 要想谈一下内需下滑的成因。

2008 年九月中旬以来世界范围内的发展中国家证券市场的市值都大幅缩水这反映 出全球性的信贷紧张投资人纷纷撤离资金以求自保。

证券市场的低迷也会影响内需个人消费和企业投资都会减少。虽然在发展中国家个人 和机构在证券市场的投资比重比在发达国家小 但该市场的不景气会影响到该地区内一些较 发达的经济体例如韩国、新加坡以及中国香港。

其次房地产市场的低迷会进一步减少内需。房价下跌将影响房地产业的投资而在该领 域的投资对于一些发展中国家内部需求的增长具有重要的拉动意义。 中国就是一个明显的例 子其房地产的投资占国内总投资的 1/4。 由于房价的下跌个人特别是在房屋上投资较多的个人将减少消费。

参考译文:The topic of my speech today is “The role of Christianity in the Development of western Democracy and Politics”. I hold the view that western democracy and politics come into being and develop within the context of its own culture. Religion, especially Christianity, has been playing a unique and complicated role. Generally speaking, official doctrines in Christianity do not emphasize on revolution. However, its preach for equality and rule by law played a positive role in history. Being reformed and utilized by democratic revolutionists, it inspires people to fight against feudal tyranny and in turn safeguards their freedom. In addition, different branches of Christianity, namely Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox and Protestantism play different roles in the advancement of modern democracy. Different cultures also lead to different types of democracies among western countries.
