      何凯文考研英语每日一句开始了。 坚持不易,每日一句kk已经不间断的坚持了八年,希望大家也能坚持下去直至2021考研考试到来。今天给大家带来何凯文考研英语每日一句:第313句,是关于生产效率悖论一起来看看吧。

      今天的句子来自6月MIT Technology Review 的一篇文章(The Productivity Paradox)2004左右以来, 世界上大多数富裕国家的生产效率增长都十分惨淡。尤其令人烦恼的是经济学家称为全要素生产率的缓慢增长——这个指标反映创新和技术的贡献。我们今天的技术可以说很发达了,但是为什么带来的经济增长却没有想象的那么大?经济学家们将之称为 “生产效率悖论”。有观点认为,今天的技术并没有我们想象的那么骄人。

      今天的句子:

      In a time of Facebook, smartphones, self-driving cars, and computers that can beat a person at just about any board game, how can the key economic measure of technological progress be so pathetic? Some argue that it’s because today’s technologies are not nearly as impressive as we think. Robert Gordon contends that compared with breakthroughs like indoor plumbing and the electric motor, today’s advances are small and of limited economic benefit.

      思考题:
