巴尼·弗兰克(Barney Frank)名言

Capitalism works better from every perspective when the economic decision makers are forced to share power with those who will be affected by those decisions.

当经济决策者被迫与那些将受到这些决策影响的人分享权力时,资本主义从各个角度来看都能发挥更好的作用。

I am not a great theologian. I know there is a theological concept called invincible ignorance in which a strong enough faith binds you to any facts to the contrary.

我不是一个伟大的神学家。我知道有一个神学概念叫做无敌的无知,在这个概念里,一个足够强大的信念把你和任何相反的事实联系在一起。

But it is also clear that left entirely untouched by public policy, the capitalist system will produce more inequality than is socially healthy or than is necessary for maximum efficiency.

但同样清楚的是,如果完全不受公共政策的影响,资本主义制度将产生更多的不平等,而不是社会健康的不平等,或是效率最大化所必需的不平等。

Well, many of us believe that excessive media concentration is a subject that ought to be addressed, and it is, of course, the intention of the majority party not to allow that to be discussed.

好吧,我们很多人都认为媒体过度集中是一个应该解决的问题,当然,多数党的意图是不允许讨论这个问题。

What would be the nicest thing I could say about Newt Gingrich? He may be one of the great supporters of the humanities, because you have people who don't want to study the social sciences, because it's not profitable, and now Newt, as the highest-paid historian in American history, may be an encouragement to people to study history.

关于纽特·金里奇,我能说的最好的话是什么?他可能是人文学科的伟大支持者之一,因为你有人不想研究社会科学,因为这是无利可图的,而现在纽特作为美国历史上收入最高的历史学家,可能是对人们研究历史的鼓励。

It is, of course, further indication that a fundamentalist right has really taken over much of the Republican Party, People might cite George Bush as proof that you can be totally impervious to the effects of Harvard and Yale education.

当然,这进一步表明,原教旨主义右翼势力已经真正占据了共和党的大部分席位,人们可能会引用乔治·布什的话作为证据,证明你可以完全不受哈佛和耶鲁教育的影响。

This bill is the legislative equivalent of crack. It yields a short-term high but does long-term damage to the system and it's expensive to boot.

这项法案在立法上相当于破绽。它会产生一个短期高点,但会对系统造成长期损害,而且启动成本很高。
