SCOTUS appointee is a spender


美女同事
[译]

I once wrote a short paper called The Savers-Spenders Theory of Fiscal Policybased on the premise that there are two types of people: Some save andintertemporally optimize their consumption plans, while others livepaycheck to paycheck, spending their entire income as soon as it'sreceived. Sometimes readers of the paper think of the two groups asrich and poor, but that interpretation is wrong. Some people with lowincomes manage to scrimp and save (I always think of my grandmother),and some people with high incomes spend most everything they earn.

我曾经写过一篇短文,“财政政策的储蓄者-支出者理论”。该文有一个假定――存在两种人:一种人储蓄,并且消费计划可以跨期最优化;另一种人呢,就是“月光族”,工资一到手,全部花光光。有些读者以为这两组人分别代表了富人和穷人,然而这种解读是错误的。一些低收入的人,精打细算地过日子,尽量储蓄(我总是想到我的祖母);有一些高收入的人,总是尽量把挣得的钱花掉。

 

Apparently, the new Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor is an example of the latter. The Washington Post reports that the 54-year-old Sotomayer has a $179,500 yearly salary but

显然,最近获得最高法院提名的Sonia Sotomayor,是第二种人。华盛顿邮报报道,54岁的Sotomayer年薪17.95万美元,然而

On herfinancial disclosure report for 2007, she said her only financialholdings were a Citibank checking and savings account, worth $50,000 to$115,000 combined. During the previous four years, the money in theaccounts at some points was listed as low as $30,000.

根据2007年的财务披露报告,她说自己仅有的金融资产就是花旗银行的支票账户和储蓄帐户,总价值在5万美元到11.5万美元之间。在过去四年间,账户里的余额在某些时点低于3万美元。

My grandmother would have been shocked and appalled to see someone who makes so much save so little.

看到有人挣得这么多,存得这么少,我的祖母定会惊愕无比。
