总统女儿也炫富:查韦斯小女儿晒美钞引众怒

  For most Venezuelans, obtaining U.S. dollars in a tightly regulated economy is a nightmare。

  对大多数的委内瑞拉人来说,在严格控制的国内经济下,持有美元是件想都不敢想的事情。

  But not for President Hugo Chavez’s 14-year-old daughter, Rosines, who posted a picture of herself peering out from behind a wad of greenbacks。

  但这对总统乌戈·查韦斯14岁的女儿罗斯尼斯来说并不适用。最近,罗斯尼斯上传了一张她在一沓美元大钞后“犹抱琵琶半遮面”的照片。

  The picture, posted on Instagram, a free photo-sharing app, triggered controversy in Venezuela this week after posting a picture of herself flaunting a fistful of dollars。

  这周,这张上传在Instagram(小编注:免费图片分享应用软件)上的照片在委内瑞拉引发了巨大的争议。罗斯尼斯遭炫富之嫌。

  Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites seethed with resentment from people who said they had been unable to change bolívares, the local currency, because of government limits on the amount of dollars that can be bought at the official, fixed rate。

  推特、脸书以及其他的社交媒体上充斥着人们批评的声音。民众表示虽然美元可按官方的固定汇率兑换,但是由于政府在美元数量上的限制,现在都无法拿当地货币玻利瓦兑换美元了。

  Some Twitter users are mocking Rosines' photo by taking photos of themselves flaunting everyday items, calling the craze #rosinesing。

  一些推特的用户刻意模仿罗斯尼斯,把美元换成日常用品拍照,并将这种热潮话题称为#罗斯尼斯进行时#,借此讽刺罗斯尼斯。

  Exchange controls adopted in 2003 to reduce capital flight oblige Venezuelans to navigate a state agency called CADIVI which is notorious for delays, corruption and capping individual allowances at $3,000 a year。

  2003年,委内瑞拉为减少资金外流,开始实行外汇管制,并设有臭名昭著的外汇管理委员会(CADIVI)。CADIVI 办事拖延严重,贪污腐败成风。委内瑞拉每人每年兑换上限为3000美元。

  Those with inside connections get extra greenbacks, those without must take their chance on an illegal parallel market which charges double for dollars。

  而有关系的人可以获得更多的美元, 没有关系的人只能在非法的二级市场上碰碰运气。通常二级市场要以双倍的汇率才能兑换美元。

  'I can't have even a single dollar unless I buy it on the black market because CADIVI has us prisoner!!!,' said Marisel Ramírez, one typical comment on the website of a newspaper, Diario Maracaibo。

  玛雷塞尔·拉米热兹在马拉开波日报网上发表的评论最具代表性:“我们已经沦为CADIVI的奴隶,现在除非在黑市上,否则我根本换不到一美元。”

  'What annoys me is the mockery given that we have to beg CADIVI and banks to give us dollars,' said Gerar Ortega, another commentator。

  另一个人吉拉尔·奥尔特加评论道:“最让我愤怒的是我们竟然需要求着CADIVI和银行给我们美元,太讽刺了。”

  Others contrasted the image of Rosinés peeking behind the bills with her father's rhetoric against capitalism and consumerism. Some satirised the photo by substituting the dollars for cooking oil, coffee, sugar and other staples that occasionally become scarce in Venezuela。

  一些人表示罗斯尼斯的照片和她父亲反资本主义与消费主义的言辞形成了鲜明的对比。还有人把照片中的美元换成委内瑞拉间或稀缺的食用油,咖啡,糖和其他的主食,来达到讽刺的意味。

  However, some defended Rosinés by pointing out that the bills were in small denominations and in total would not be worth a lot of money。

  然而也有人站出来为罗斯尼斯说话,称她手中的美钞面值小,总共不值多少钱。

  Rosines' mother, Marisabel, who divorced Chavez in 2003, defended her daughter on Twitter。

  罗斯尼斯的母亲玛丽莎贝尔在推特上为她的女儿辩护。玛丽莎贝尔在2003年与查韦斯离婚。

  'I told her that her mistake wasn't to take the picture, but rather posting it on a medium where there are ignorant people who don't respect other,' she said。

  她说:“我告诉她你错不在拍那张照片,而在将它上传到了网上,现在的网民愚昧无知又不懂得尊重别人”。

  The photo is the second time Rosines has made headlines for allegedly flaunting her family's lavish lifestyle, the first being when she posted a photo of herself meeting pop star Justin Bieber. Critics claimed this showed a glimpse of the family's exalted lifestyle。

  这张照片使罗斯尼斯再次成为头版头条,被骂炫耀奢华的生活。上一次,她上传了和小天王贾斯汀比伯的合照。批评者认为这显示了这一家人富裕的生活。

  Rosines’s latest picture, for many Venezuelans, highlights the parallel system at work: easy access for those close to Chavez, restrictions for those with no connections。

  对于很多的委内瑞拉人来说,罗斯尼斯的这张照片凸显了现行的平行外汇系统:亲查韦斯者宽,远查韦斯者严。

  Chavez, who is seeking a third six-year term later this year, made his youngest child famous in 2006 when he credited her with an amendment to the national flag and coat of arms。

  查韦斯将在今年年底争取第三次连任,任期6年。早在2006年,罗斯尼斯就因为向查韦斯提出了修改国旗国徽而出名。

  The then eight-year-old suggested the image of the horse should gallop right to left rather than left to right. Her father agreed and the national assembly approved the change

  那时才八岁的罗斯尼斯建议国徽上的马儿应从右向左奔驰而不是从左向右。查韦斯同意了这一提议,随后这一提议被国民大会批准。
