When the United States built its industrials infrastructure, it didn't have the capital to do so.
And that is why America's Second Wave infrastructure — including roads, harbors, highways, ports and so on — were built with foreign investment.
当初美国建设自己的工业基础设施时,缺乏必要的资金,因此美国的第二次浪潮基础设施——包括公路、港口,高速公路、港口城市等等——都是用国外资金建造的。
The English, the Germans, the Dutch and the French were investing in Britain's former colony.
英国人、德国人、荷兰人和法国人都在前英国殖民地投资。
They financed them. Immigrant Americans built them.
他们提供资金,美洲移民建造。
Guess who owns them now? The Americans.
想想看,现在谁拥有这一切?美国人。

The more foreign capital you have helping you build your Third Wave infrastructure, which today is an electronic infrastructure, the better off you're going to be.
你拥有的去建造第三次浪潮基础设施(今天主要指电子基础设施)的外国资金越多,那么你的情况就越好。
That doesn't mean lying down and becoming fooled, or letting foreign corporations run uncontrolled.
这并不是说卑躬屈膝,任人愚弄,也不是对外国公司不加控制。
But it does mean recognizing how important they can be in building the energy and telecom infrastructures needed to take full advantage of the Internet.

The world is going through the biggest wave of mergers and acquisitions ever witnessed.
世界正在经历一场前所未有的巨大的并购浪潮。
The process sweeps from hyperactive America to Europe and reaches the emerging countries with unsurpassed might.
这个浪潮从异常活跃的美国席卷到欧洲,并以不可比拟的威力影响到正在崛起的国家。
Many in these countries are looking at this process and worrying: "Won't the wave of business concentration turn into an uncontrollable anti-competitive force?"
这些国家的许多人面对这个浪潮开始忧虑:“企业合并的浪潮会不会变成一股不可控制的反竞争的力量?”

I believe that the most important forces behind the massive M&A wave are the same that underlie the globalization process: falling transportation and communication costs, lower trade and investment barriers and enlarged markets that require enlarged operations capable of meeting customers' demands.
我认为,推动这股巨大的并购浪潮的最主要的力量,也是推动全球化进程的力量,包括日趋下降的运输与通讯费用,较低的贸易与投资壁垒,以及市场的扩大和为满足市场需求而进行的扩大生产。

Examples of benefits or costs of the current concentration wave are scanty.
目前证明这股合并浪潮是带来利还是弊的实例并不多。
Yet it is hard to imagine that the merger of a few oil firms today could re-create the same threats to competition that were feared nearly a century ago in the US, when the Standard Oil trust was broken up.
但是很难想像当今的几个石油公司的合并是否会重新造成约100年前美国标准石油公司对竞争造成的同样的威胁,那时由于人们对该公司的这种担心而导致了它最终的解散。
The mergers of telecom companies, such as World Com, hardly seem to bring higher prices for consumers or a reduction in the pace of technical progress.
像世界通讯这样的通讯公司合并似乎没有给消费者带来更高的价格,或者降低技术进步的速度。
On the contrary, the price of communications is coming down fast.
相反,通信的价格在迅速下降。

{n: sonic depth finder, fathometer} depth finder for determining depth of water or a submerged object by means of ultrasound waves

{n: sonogram, echogram} an image of a structure that is produced by ultrasonography (reflections of high-frequency sound waves); used to observe fetal growth or to study bodily organs

{n: sonography, ultrasonography, echography, ultrasound} using the reflections of high-frequency sound waves to construct an image of a body organ (a sonogram); commonly used to observe fetal growth or study bodily organs

{n: sonograph} an instrument that uses the differential transmission and reflection of ultrasonic waves in order to provide an image of a bodily organ

{n: sound wave, acoustic wave} (acoustics) a wave that transmits sound

{n: spectrum} an ordered array of the components of an emission or wave

{n: spray} water in small drops in the atmosphere; blown from waves or thrown up by a waterfall

{n: standing wave, stationary wave} a wave (as a sound wave in a chamber or an electromagnetic wave in a transmission line) in which the ratio of its instantaneous amplitude at one point to that at any other point does not vary with time

"the swash of waves on the beach"

{n: swell, crestless wave} the undulating movement of the surface of the open sea

{n: synchronism, synchrony, synchronicity, synchroneity, synchronization, synchronisation, synchronizing} the relation that exists when things occur at the same time
"the drug produces an increased synchrony of the brain waves"
<-> asynchronism, desynchronization, desynchronizing

{n: television equipment, video equipment} electronic equipment that broadcasts or receives electromagnetic waves representing images and sound

{n: theta rhythm, theta wave} the normal brainwave in the encephalogram of a person who is awake but relaxed and drowsy; occurs with low frequency and low amplitude

{n: tidal bore, bore, eagre, aegir, eager} a high wave (often dangerous) caused by tidal flow (as by colliding tidal currents or in a narrow estuary)

{n: tidal wave} a wave resulting from the periodic flow of the tides that is caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon and sun

{n: tidal wave} an overwhelming manifestation of some emotion or phenomenon
"a tidal wave of nausea"
"the flood of letters hit him with the force of a tidal wave"
