  • 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.
  • 解题思路:录音一开始提到,在美国政府和纳税人的帮助下,美国银行业得以复苏,总统奥巴马说银行是时候要作出回报了:现在银行更有义务去完成更大范围的经济复苏这一目标。C 项与录音相符。

  • 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.
  • 解题思路:在银行的问题上,Richard Davis 比一些经济专家更乐观,他说借贷就好像煤炭对于引擎的作用一样,所以我们要放出更多的贷款。D 项中 provide more loans 是录音中 make more loans 的同义转换,故为正确答案。

  • B.Many smaller regional banks are going to fail.
  • C.It will be hard for banks to provide more loans.

  • 解题思路:录音提到,经济学家 Martin Neil Baily 认为银行业危机并没有结束,在 2009 年已经有 130 多家美国银行倒闭,预计在 2010 年会有更多规模小的地区性银行面临倒闭,原因是商业地产贷款将到期,B 项与之相符。

    录音原文:
      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?
