Coronavirus Capitalism

 


お肉券やお魚券などを見ると、ナオミクラインの語る災害に便乗するDisaster Capitalismが説得力を持ってしまいます。彼女はサンダースを支持しているので、皆保険や学費免除、グリーンニューディールなどを解決策としてあげています。

英文記事ではどのように訳されているのか確認したら、voucherかcouponが使われていました。

Lawmakers are floating ideas such as cash handouts, beef and fish shopping vouchers to support households, financial backstops for tourism and restaurant firms, who have been hit hard by the virus.

Politics Mar 26, 2020
Tokyo, March 26 (Jiji Press)--The Liberal Democratic Party on Thursday compiled an outline of proposed stimulus measures for the agriculture and forestry industries in response to the COVID-19 crisis featuring shopping vouchers to buy Japanese beef.

The ruling party is seeking to prop up demand for "wagyu" beef that has plummeted due mainly to a slump in the number of foreign visitors to Japan.

Coupons for domestic beef and fish could be headed for consumers as part of the government's economic stimulus package amid the new coronavirus outbreak.

People need cash in their hands so they can deal with their own personal situations- like paying rent, mortgages, debt, food, medication etc.

‘Beef and fish coupons’ are a complete waste of time, and the fact such an idea is even being given the time of day is yet more evidence that these people just don’t have a clue.

Fish and beef coupons?, will my bank accept them in Lew of my monthly mortgage? Are those in charge so disconnected from normal life. From their idiotic ideas it would appear so.

Err no, food coupons are what I don’t need.

I see my income (already impacted) getting lower in April, possibly May and June too.

I still have utilities and rent to pay this month!

TOEICで登場するのは圧倒的にrentが多いですが、mortgage(住宅ローン)も押さえておきたいですね。そういえばTOEICでは不動産屋が案内するのは基本的に賃貸マンションの一室で、なぜか一軒家を案内するのは見かけませんね。
