左右紅藍綠(二)

又有幸為港台的「左右紅藍綠」做主持,經過上次的經驗,今次講稿:嘅、喺、呢盡出,錄影自然輕鬆不少。

錄影前,編導問有否練習。本來以為是怕我準備不足,原來卻是「嫌」我上次準備太過充足,於是說得太快、太似背書。其實現在演講、接受訪問甚少背稿,只是身為主持,如果說得不順又看似奇怪,看來當中平衡真考工夫。

錄影甚為順利,兩集只用了個多小時。「收工」之時,經編導提醒才知可於化妝間落妝;上次,我是「原妝」走的,難怪之後塊面咁滑……

兩集將於星期四播出。

Ming,

Wonderful job in explaining the rationale for the speculative activities behind the recent oil prices volatility in a manner that average Joe/Jane will have a better chance of appreciate the complexity of the various issues.

Great job.

Regards,
Kempton

Thanks, Kempton. Just think what I talked was so boring that probably killed the audience, if any (smile).

Ming,

With expensive gas around the world (e.g. $4 a gallon gas in US and $1.33 per litre of gas in Canada), I find the topic quite interesting.

And thanks for sharing your insight about the Vietnam financial crisis (including the 25% inflation rate that I am not aware of) and your comparing Vietnam's problems with China's in 1993-94. I've learned a few things for sure.

Cheers,
Kempton

P.S. It is so important for us to learn from history. Now, the trick, for non-expert like myself, is to find similarities in seemingly different times, places, and slightly different circumstances.

P.P.S. Love the quote, "Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon. — Milton Friedman" Now, one of these days I hope to understand it deeper than simply faking my "understanding". :)

Kempton,

I must confess that the idea of comparing Vietnam today with China in 90s comes from the Professor (http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af7010008ja.html).

Yes, learning from history, results of past natural experiments is really important, especially for economics as a social science.

譁係,而家做埋主持,真係全職傳媒人wor。

其實我都想試下新野,拓闊一下眼界,也汲取多些經驗,而非一味閉門寫稿。但我未試過面對群眾,怕緊張影響表現,是以為難。

如果我習慣面對群眾,對將來教書很有幫助,因為我一直都想誤人子弟,且有多年補習經驗,口若懸河,滔滔不絕,但考慮到單對單補習,跟大班教書是兩回事,所以遲遲未敢付諸實行。

薯:

其實主持、專欄均是因"會"之名,怎能跟你的個人專欄相比﹖而主持好、教書好,人生苦短,何必左顧右盼﹖

以往的我,也是顧慮先行,現在會問自己臨終之時,有何遺憾,可以坐言起行的,就始於足下。你看,我工作了七年才臨老入校園,雖無成就,也樂得了卻心願。

努力準備,以待機遇。

人大了,做事難免謹慎,現在結了婚,則更不用說,只能靜待時機。其實,教夜校也不錯,起碼不用幹無聊的行政。

另,我雖然有一個專欄,但不知有幾耐壽命,有些事,不是我可以控制的,只能如履薄冰,寫好每一篇文。

要自立門戶也不難,當初我都係自薦的,他日你覺得時機成熟,也可以考慮以自己的名闖天下。

機會係握在每個人的手裡。
