听君一席话,胜读十年书。" 比尔盖茨回答了关于美国工作被外包、青年从业人员在经济危机下要如何应对等问题,不知他对普罗大众的建议会不会让你受益非浅?

比尔盖茨的“金玉良言”

We invited our viewers to send us video questions, iReports for you.And I’ll get to a couple of them. This one from a woman named Hillary Ohm of Colville, Washington. She said she recently lost her job because Microsoft stopped contracting with her company because they didn't havea worldwide workforce, something like that。

1. What do you think about the outsourcing of U.S. jobs? And do you think that this trend will continue in the future for Microsoft and its vendors?

你如何看待美国的工作被外包?对于微软和其供应商来说,这个趋势在将来会持续吗?

Well, Microsoft employs a higher percentage of people in the U.S. bya large amount than the portion of our sales that are in the U.S。

微软在美国雇佣的员工比例要比我们在美国雇佣的销售人员高很多。

We're a global company, and you've got to have salespeople and greatengineers from around the world contributing to those products。

我们是全球公司,你必须要有来自世界各地的销售人员和好的工程师来为我们产品服务。

But we're a company whose labor base is overwhelmingly here. in theUnited States. And so issues like the quality of education are very important. You know, that's why I believe in that issue. Actually, the company gives a lot to those issues。

但我们公司员工大本营还是在美国,像教育质量这样的问题很重要。我相信这个问题的价值,公司也对那些问题给予了很多考虑。

And so, you know, actually, Microsoft, so far, has been able to beincrease employment. And so as a contributor to additional economicactivity. Part of that is because we do have worldwide sales, worldwidepresence. That means we're not exposed just to the one economy。

实际上微软至今还能增加雇员,也对额外的经济活动做出贡献。部分原因是因为我们做全球销售,我们不仅仅局限于一个国家。

We have another I-Report question from Mark Merritt of Aurora, Colorado。

2. As a young professional, with the economy the way it is, what doyou feel is the best method to stay above water and not lose hope?

作为一个年青的专业人员,在这样的经济环境中, 你认为要脱离困境,保持希望的最好方法是什么?

Well, I think people are being more careful about using credit cards and getting into debt。

我认为人们在使用信用卡和负债方面要更小心。

I'm hopeful that people will invest in themselves, that is, get more education, because that's the thing that has the highest payoff, notjust economically, but in terms of the contribution you can make and interms of having a job that's stimulating and enjoyable for your entirelife. And, so, you know, if somebody thinking about going back toschool, even though, in the short run, that's -- that's hard for them,I would encourage them to do it。

我很希望人们能投资自己,获得更多的教育,因为那是最高的回报,不仅是在经济方面,而是就你所能做的贡献和你能找到一个让你终生兴奋和愉悦的工作这两方面来看的。如果有人考虑重返学校,即使是短期的,对于他们很难,但我将鼓励他们去做。

Bill Gates, thanks for all the work you do , and thanks for joining us。

Thank you。
