资料原文

After days of losses, stocks have been gaining on word that President Barack Obama and top Republican lawmakers are discussing ways to keep the U.S. government from defaulting on its obligations.
The president says a default would endanger America's standing in the world economy.
“It would disrupt markets. It would undermine the world’s confidence in America as the bedrock of the global economy, and it might permanently increase our borrowing costs," said President Obama.
Obama's Treasury secretary, Jack Lew, told senators the uncertainty around raising the debt limit is already stressing financial markets, meaning the U.S. government will have to pay higher interest rates to borrow money.
“At our auction of four-week Treasury bills on Tuesday, the interest rate nearly tripled, relative to the prior week’s auction, and it reached the highest level since October 2008," said Lew.
Economist Thomas Hungerford, at the Economic Policy Institute says that means trouble for the world economy.

奥巴马总统说,债务违约会危及美国在世界经济中的地位。
他说: “这将扰乱市场。这将破坏世界对美国作为全球经济基石的信心,并可能会永久增加我们的借贷成本。 ”
奥巴马政府的财政部长杰克.卢(Jack Lew)告诉参议员们,关于提高债务上限的不确定性已经在使金融市场紧张,这意味着美国政府将不得不支付更高的利率来借钱。
他说: “上周二我们四个星期的国债券拍卖,利率比前一周的拍卖接近翻了两倍,并达到2008年10月以来的最高水平。”
经济政策研究所(Economic Policy Institute)的经济学家托马斯.亨格福德说,这意味着世界经济的麻烦。
