7000亿美金如何救市?

2008-10-08 09:38ABC

  参考文本:

  The economic crisis has really changed the dynamic of the presidential race. This week the government is expected to lay out details of exactly how it will implement the bailout, or rescue plan, or whatever you want to call it. The question many Americans are asking tonight is how long it is going to take before this $700 billion investment actually starts healing the economy.Here is ABC's Vienna Goagriga.

  This week the Treasury Department is expected to announce exactly how it will spend up to $ 700 billion in tax money to buy up bad loans from distressed financial institutions. The primary goal is recharging a credit market that has all but frozen. But at a gathering of topic economic minds in Washington today, there was a sense that while freeing credit markets is essential, the benefits for Americans will take a while to kick in.

  "And we are watching what happens to the money markets and we're watching how American consumers are feeling. And we're watching the availability of credit to businesses. But these problems were made over a long time. They were made with a failed think about risk; they were made with a strategy of deregulation. And they will take us time to walk through."

  In some ways, the bill is already having an effect. It's what many believe inspired Wells Fargo to jump into a bidding war was CITI Group over Wachovia Bank. Legendary investor Warren Buffet also credited the bill for his billion-dollar investments last week in Goldman Sachs and General Electric. As for the economic picture going forward, all signs point towards more losses for the foreseeable future.

  "We've been in a period of job destruction now for the better part of the year. There is nothing in the data that suggests that is going to stop soon, policy has been behind the curve. What's very important is to try to get ahead of the curve."

  "So the first thing that has to be done is to figure out how to price these bad assets that the government will be buying up. And if the prices are too high, then we can be overpaying for them. If price them too low, and you are not really helping these financial institutions that we do not trust right now as we suppose so."

  "Hugely tricky job. Again, how long do we think it will be before we start feeling the benefits of this investment?"

  "Well, the first thing we have to do is see the credit market ease up, right? So, that doesn't help right now. We may see the Fed command and sort of globally coordinated rate cut with other central banks; it's sort of pump money and get the credit markets charged again. But the good news is that these are tangible assets that the government can hold on them for a foreseeable future; the bad news is the problem seems to be spreading to banks and countries around the world."

  "Well, let me pick it up from that. These are tangible assets; the $700 billion, we're going to be buying; the taxpayers will be buying things, the mortgage-related assets. There is the chance that we can actually make money, right?"

  "There is a chance and of course we have to have the housing market stabilized. We continue to see these declines in home prices that might happen within the next couple of years. But, yes, since the government is coming in, since the money was just throwing away, so the government can hold them definitely until we finally see the housing market had bought them, and get accurate, we don't look these were priced out."

  "Vienna, Thank you. Vienna Goagriga's reporting tonight."
