今天我們要學的詞是 devaluation. Devaluation is spelled D-E-V-A-L-U-A-T-I-O-N, devaluation.
devaluation 的意思是貶值。 US President Donald Trump said he would restore tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Brazil and Argentina because of, what he called, the “massive devaluation” of the countries’ currencies which has hurt American farmers. 美國總統特朗普表示，他將恢復對巴西和阿根廷進口的鋼鐵和鋁徵收關稅，原因是他認為這兩個國家貨幣“大量貶值”，傷害到美國農民。
The governor of China’s central bank Yi Gang said recently that China would maintain a “normal” monetary policy and would not get involved in competitive devaluation in an effort to improve the country’s slowing economy. 中國央行行長易綱最近表示，中國將維持“正常”的貨幣政策，不會為改善正在放緩的國內經濟而爭相進行貨幣貶值。
