PTE Re-tell Lecture 真实讲座练习题:全球化与自动化

在PTE中,无论是Summarise Spoken Text 还是 Re-tell Lecture的考题大都是从真实的讲座或者演讲中截取的,中间经常经常夹杂很多不同的环境音.很多同学都反映有时未必是听不懂,而是听不到. 鉴于此,墨尔本文波雅思PTE专门为大家总结了真实讲座的PTE练习音频,相比新闻音频来说,整体更加接近PTE考试的真题,内容方面,我们也会为大家提供考试中存在的近似题,最近我们会持续更新,敬请期待!

We have seen the emergence of what we call earth ache and we’ve always had a globalized economy to one degree or another, um, since China was connected to Europe and certainly since Europeans came to North America. Globalization is not new but what is new is the level of interconnection with supply chains running from multinational corporations to more than a hundred countries and many cases and these interconnections bring tremendous advantages and the advantages that companies like Apple have gained from being able to partner with the developers and with contractors and China is well known and the benefits to the Chinese people have been well-known. But remember that last year Foxconn announced that it was going to install two million robots by 2014. I doubt they will do that by 2014, by the way, but it’s only a matter of time before we see the growing extension not only of our physical capacities as has occurred in the industrial revolution and in an ongoing way but the extension of our cognitive functions as well. There is a new algorithm that is being used by some law firms now, that make it possible for a single first year lawyer to perform as much legal research as used to require $500 first-year lawyers and the quality up the research is measurably higher so many jobs that we used to believe would remain the unique province of our species are now also being robo source in addition to being outsource and the combination of outsourcing and robo sourcing are years now hollowing out the income streams for many middle-income wage-earners in many countries.
