“赤”的24個解釋

      金無足赤、人無完人 俗語之所謂金無足赤、人無完人之意思是指事情沒有十全十美的,不要過份要求也。 這個赤,並非指沒有或紅色之意思,而是足金之稱呼,但這個足赤之金,為何如此赤熱?就是因為美國財政赤字所導至的。 美國國庫赤貧如洗,導使美元面對赤族(滅族)之危,即使赤贍忠肝之奧巴馬,亦無力使美國回復昔日之赤松(長青樹)階段,難以再像昔日赤壁之戰那樣扭轉乾坤。 皆因喬治布殊是個赤衣之人(千古罪人),採取弱美元政策去改善美國貿赤,又連年開戰,導至財赤急升,使赤老(老軍人)怨聲載道,即使奧巴馬要收回赤幀(在中東撤軍),也難以彌補連年征戰之赤字。 一等大國之貨幣美元,如今己變為赤米(粗糙下等之米),若再持續下去,美國經濟將會赤地千里(一無所有),如今黃金之上升,帶動了赤金,漢朝之時,銅是稱赤金的。甚麼都升,是美元跌。   不是每個人都知一個“赤”字會有那麼多解釋,外國人就只知all that glitter is not gold,但這一連串之赤的疑感(沒落的感概),正是赤裸裸暴露了今天金融市場之實況,即使閣下赤足千里(浪跡天涯),也難逃弱美元之影響。 赤縣神州(古代對中國之稱呼)之興起,使新興國家貨幣價值更高,相對而言,美元更是如赤痢(肚瀉)那樣一瀉千里了。   This is an excerpt from my daily commentary in our company on the bullion market, the reader is general public on the … Continue reading
