  英文原文:

  Britain Loses Half Of Its Millionaires

  Suddenly everyone is talking about disappearing millionaires.

  Tuesday there was The Wall Street Journal talking about the vanishing Maryland millionaires. Now comes word that Britain has lost about half its millionaires.

  The reason isn't emigration or tax revolts. It is personal finances.

  As I have been writing for the past year, the rich have been hammered by this crisis, largely because of the plunge in the value of their investments and real estate. As a result, the millionaire population (especially the lower end) is taking a dive.

  参考译文:

  英国百万富翁人数减少近半

  突然之间,人人都在谈论不断消失的百万富翁们。

  周二,《华尔街日报》有篇文章谈到了美国马里兰州百万富翁越来越少。现在有消息说,英国的百万富翁人数减少了约一半。

  这并不是因为富翁们移民或是避税去了,而是个人财务状况出了问题。

  正如过去一年中我所写的,富人们在此次危机中遭受了重创,原因主要是他们的投资和房地产的价值锐减。正因为如此,百万富翁(特别是富翁中的“贫困户”)的人数骤减。
