Economist を読む(47)−最大の石油輸入国に中国


*プレイヤーが表示されない方はこちら
China overtook America in December as the world’s biggest oil importer for the first time. America’s net oil imports slid to 5.98m barrels a day, the lowest since February 1992, while China’s rose to 6.12m. America’s reliance on oil imports has fallen as domestic production has surged to 7m b/d, mostly because of the boom in shale oil.

America’s Federal Aviation Administration grounded Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner after an All Nippon Airways flight in Japan had to make an emergency landing because of a burning smell, the most serious of several recent incidents related to the aircraft’s electrical systems. The Dreamliner was also grounded in Europe, Japan and elsewhere. Boeing, which is hoping to ramp up production of its new jet this year, said it would work with regulators to fix the problems as quickly as possible.

Barack Obama was re-elected as America’s president, beating Mitt Romney by around 50%-48%. Although the result was close in the popular vote, Mr Romney managed to win over only two states−Indiana and North Carolina−that had voted for Mr Obama in 2008, and failed to make much of an impression in the crucial Midwest. Mr Obama’s victory was helped in large part by strong support from Hispanic voters and women.

The price Microsoft is paying is 400 times greater than operating income at Skype, which generates surprisingly little revenue per user.
