比尔·盖茨:衰退将再次上演

Kirsten Korosec 2018年03月12日

盖茨相信,类似于2008年的金融危机将卷土重来,只是不知何时会来。

美国金融危机演变成全球衰退已经是10年前的事了,而亿万富翁、慈善家、微软联合创始人比尔·盖茨相信,这种情况将再次上演。

只不过他不知道衰退什么时候会来。

不久前,在他的第六场名为“Ask Me Anything”的Reddit直播活动中,有人问盖茨:“你觉得短期内会再次出现类似2008年那样的金融危机吗?”

盖茨的回答简短而醒目。

“会。什么时候发生很难说,但这一点确定无疑。幸运的是,我们在上次金融危机中的经历还算可以。巴菲特曾谈到过这个问题,他对这个领域的了解比我强得多。”

盖茨指的是自己的朋友、另一位亿万富翁,同时也是知名投资人兼伯克希尔·哈撒韦公司掌门人沃伦·巴菲特。两人在2010年发起了裸捐计划The Giving Pledge,鼓励富人将大部分财产贡献给慈善事业。

盖茨用较为乐观的腔调结束了自己的回答。

“虽然我觉得今后会出现难关,但就创新和资本主义将如何改善全人类的处境而言,我的看法相当乐观。”

盖茨在这次直播中回答了几十个问题,其中包括加密货币和医疗保健。(财富中文网)

It’s been 10 years since a financial crisis in the U.S. escalated into a global recession. And billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes another is coming.

He’s just not sure when.

During his sixth Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session Tuesday, Gates was asked: “Do you think in the near future, we will have another financial crisis similar to the one in 2008?”

His response was short and notable.

“Yes. It is hard to say when but this is a certainty. Fortunately we got through that one reasonably well. Warren has talked about this and he understands this area far better than I do.”

Gates is referring to fellow billionaire and friend Warren Buffett, the famed investor and Berkshire Hathaway chief. Buffett and Gates founded The Giving Pledge in 2010, a campaign to encourage wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes.

Gates finished his answer on a rosier note.

“Despite this prediction of bumps ahead I am quite optimistic about how innovation and capitalism will improve the situation for humans everywhere,” Gates wrote on Reddit.

Gates answered dozens of questions in this latest AMA, including the cryptocurrencies and health care.
