最近有研究人员表示,观察经济形势其实也可以很简单,看看女士们的鞋跟高度就可以了。鞋跟越高表明经济形势越好。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

Researchers have charted the average heel height of shoes women buy and the strength of the economy since 2008. They say demand for super-high heels soars in a strong economy but switches to sensible, lower shoes when times are tough.

It is called heel index where high heels represent a carefree attitude, and when times are tough, we crave stability and switch to lower heels.

研究人员自2008年起就开始记录女性购买鞋子的平均鞋跟高度和经济发展状况。他们表示,经济发展强劲时期,超高跟鞋的需求量会猛增;而经济不景气时,需求则转向鞋跟高度相对正常、鞋跟偏低的鞋子。

这种情况叫做鞋跟指数,高跟鞋代表无忧无虑的态度;而时势艰难的时候,人们都渴望稳定,于是把目光投向低跟鞋。

【讲解】

heel index”解释为鞋跟指数,其中index解释为指数指标,相关的词组有:index futures 指数期货wage index 工资指数index arbitrage 指数套利。“carefree”是形容词,解释为无忧无虑的,近义词有:worry-free、light-hearted等。

  • My opinion is:
    When times are tough, we switch to lower heels not because we crave stability, but because we have to work harder, save more and walk more. Lower heels are easier for us to walk. High heels are beautiful, but only suitable for leisure time.

    • Also, it is easier for feet and ankles to get hurt in high heels, so we have to be careful when the economy is bad.

  • Many ladies pursue high heels even if they are in tough situations. It has nothing to do with the economy, it is just the attitude towards life. To them, wearing high heels is just as natural as breathing the air.
