希腊 xīlà Greece
附带条件 fùdài tiáojiàn attached conditions
税赋 shuìfù taxes
假造 jiǎzào to fake
奇怪,人家要借钱给他还不要,希腊人脑子烧坏了吗?
qíguài ,rénjiā yào jiè qián gěi tā hái bù yào ,xīlà rén nǎozi shāo huài le ma ?
That's strange, people want to lend them money and they don't want it, have the Greeks lost their minds?
你这人看新闻只看标题啊?借钱是有附带条件的,要减少政府开支,还有加重税赋。
nǐ zhè rén kàn xīnwén zhī kàn biāotí ā ?jièqián shì yǒu fùdài tiáojiàn de ,yào jiǎnshǎo zhèngfǔ kāizhī ,háiyǒu jiāzhòng shuìfù 。
You only ever read the headline, eh? There are conditions to the loan. They have to reduce government spending and raise taxes.
可是这要求合理啊,不就是因为政府假造财政数字,掩饰负债,才造成现在的情况吗?负债的人要还债,本来就应该撙节开支。
kěshì zhè yāoqiú hélǐ ā ,bù jiùshì yīnwèi zhèngfǔ jiǎzào cáizhèng shùzì ,yǎnshì fùzhài ,cái zàochéng xiàn zài de qíngkuàng ma ?fùzhài de rén yào huán zhài ,běnlái jiù yīnggāi zǔnjié kāizhī 。
But these requests are reasonable. Isn't it just because the government were faking their numbers and hiding their debts, that this state of affairs came about in the first place? People should honor their debts, so of course they need to be more austere with their expenditure.
看来你不是只看标题哦,你说的在道理上没错,但是你叫已经失业、贫穷,账户里取不出钱来的人民接受加税,可能吗?
kànlai nǐ bùshì zhī kàn biāotí ò ,nǐshuōde zài dàolǐ shàng méicuò ,dànshì nǐ jiào yǐjīng shīyè 、pínqióng ,zhànghù lǐ qǔ bù chū qián lái de rénmín jiēshòu jiā shuì ,kěnéng ma ?
It looks like you didn't just read the headline, after all. What you're saying is right in terms of logic, but you're asking a people who are already unemployed, living in poverty and who can't take any money out of their accounts to accept tax increases. You think that's possible?
