随着新冠疫情加剧财务紧张,印度人抛售黄金传家宝

NEW DELHI: Paul Fernandes, a 50-year-old waiter in India, last year took out a loan using his gold as collateral to pay for his children’s education after losing his job on a cruise liner. This year, he is selling his gold jewelry to meet expenses, after failed attempts at starting a home business and finding another job.

新德里:保罗·费尔南德斯,印度一名50岁的服务员,去年在失去游轮上的工作后,用他的黄金作抵押贷款来支付孩子的学费。今年,他卖掉了自己的黄金首饰,以应付开支。此前,他曾尝试在家中创业,并试图另找一份工作,但都失败了。

“A gold loan is after all a de t that I am taking on,” he said from his hometown in the coastal state of Goa. “Selling my jewelry means I am not obligated to pay someone back along with an additional interest on that.”

他在沿海果a的老家说:“黄金抵押贷款毕竟是债务,把黄金首饰卖了意味着我没有义务偿还贷款,也不用支付额外的利息。”

With the pandemic pushing millions into poverty or bankruptcy, many Indians are now turning to their last resort: selling their gold jewelry to make ends meet. In rural India, the biggest bullion buyer, a brutal new wave of the vir s has had a catastrophic impact on the economy and incomes. With fewer banks around, people in rural areas rely on gold in times of need as it can be easily liquidated.

随着疫情使数百万人陷入贫困或破产,许多印度人现在不得已走最后一步:卖掉他们的黄金首饰以维持生计。印度农村地区是黄金的最大买家,新一轮的疫情对经济和收入造成了灾难性的影响。由于周围的银行较少,农村地区的人们在有不时之需时依赖黄金,因为黄金可以轻松变现。

Gross scrap supplies, which include old gold melted to make new designs, may exceed 215 tons and surge to the highest in nine years if a new wave emerges, he said. For a nation that imports almost all its gold mainly from Switzerland, higher local supply will also limit overseas inflows.

他说,如果出现新的废料供应浪潮,总废料供应可能超过215吨,并升至九年来的最高水平,其中包括用于制作新设计的旧金。对于一个几乎所有黄金都从瑞士进口的国家来说,国内黄金供应的增加也将限制海外黄金流入。

“You already had a financial problem last year and you got out of that problem through gold loans. Now again, you are having financial problems this year with a pentially third wave on the way, which can again mean lockdowns and job losses,” said Sheth. “We can expect distress sales in a big way in August and September when the third wave could actually set in.”

 Sheth说:“你们去年已经出现了财务问题,你们通过黄金贷款摆脱了这个问题。今年又遇到了财务问题,而且可能会出现第三波疫情,这可能再次意味着封锁和失业。我们可以预计,在8月和9月,第三波疫情真正到来时,会出现大规模的廉价抛售。”

Many Indians who had clawed their way out of poverty face grim job prospects as lockdowns crippled the economy. More than 200 million have gone back to earning less than minimum wage, or $5, a day.

随着封锁令经济陷入瘫痪,许多艰难摆脱贫困的印度人面临着严峻的就业前景。超过2亿人的收入回到了低于最低工资水平(每天5美元)。
