자신감



하지만 자신감이 지나치면 계획을 잘못 세우기 쉽다. 정부가 어떤 프로젝트를 추진할 때도 마찬가지다. 호주 정부는 57년 시드니 오페라하우스 건립을 추진했다. 700만 달러를 들여 63년까지 완공한다는 계획이었다. 실제로는 1억2000만 달러를 들인 후 73년에야 개관했다. 규모를 원래 계획보다 훨씬 축소시켰는데도 말이다.

According to ⓒthe plan, the project would cost ⓓ7 million dollars and be completed in 1963. In fact, it cost ⓔ120 million dollars to build the Opera House which opened in 1973.

ⓒthe plan → the original plan 문맥상 초기의
ⓓⓔ 신문 상에서 dollar표기는 보통 숫자 앞에 $기호를 붙여서 나타냄


소위 MB 노믹스의 ‘747(연간 7% 성장, 10년 내 1인당 국민소득 4만 달러, 세계 7대 선진국 진입)’ 공약은 어떻게 될까. 다음 대통령 임기 때라도 실현될 수 있으면 좋겠다. 그러려면 지금부터 어떤 토대를 만들어 가는 것이 좋을지 대통령과 비서진이 고민해야 하지 않을까. 국회 등원을 거부하는 야당이나 50여 일째 서울 도심을 점거한 시위대의 협조는 없다는 전제하에서.

The so-called MB-nomics has a “747 plan,” which ⓐmeans to achieve ⓑ7 percent of annual growth, ⓑ$40,000 dollars national per capita income within 10 years and to become one of the world’s seven strongest countries. So what will happen to this ambitious pledge? It would be good even if these goals were met ⓒunder the next president. President Lee and his aides should ⓓthink seriously what should be done to achieve the goals. They must bear in mind, though, that they can’t expect any cooperation from the opposition party, which still refuses to go to the National Assembly, or protesters who have occupied central Seoul for some ⓔfifty days.

Writing Tip
ⓐ means → aims 문맥에 자연스러운 표현으로 수정
ⓑ $40,000 dollars → $40,000 이미 앞에 $표기가 있으므로 뒤에 중복되는 ’dollar’ 삭제
ⓒ under → by ‘~에 의해’라는 의미의 전치사 ‘by’로 수정. 참고로 전치사 ‘under’의 경우 ‘(세력 or 영향)하에서’라는 의미를 지니고 있음
ⓓ think seriously → think seriously about ‘~에 대해 생각하다’라는 표현에는 ‘think about~’ 사용
ⓔ fifty → 50 신문기사에서는 보통 두 자리 이상은 숫자로, 한 자리는 글자로 표기함
