In the latest valuation review of the Special Drawing Right-an international reserve asset also known as SDR, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) raised the weight of the renminbi in the basket of currencies that make up the SDR by 1.36 percentage points, to 12.28 percent, the People's Bank of China, the nation's central bank, said on Sunday. The SDR valuation review, completed on Wednesday, marked the first review since the renminbi was included in the SDR basket in 2016, with a share of 10.92 percent, the central bank said.
中国人民银行5月15日发布消息称,国际货币基金组织执董会于5月11日完成对特别提款权(SDR)的定值审查,决定将人民币在SDR货币篮子中的权重提高1.36个百分点,从10.92%上调至12.28%。这是自2016年人民币"入篮"后的首次审查。


Effective Aug 1, the weight increase will allow the renminbi to continue to account for the third-largest share in the basket, behind only the US dollar and the euro, but ranking higher than the Japanese yen and the British pound.
新的SDR货币篮子将于今年8月1日正式生效。调整后,人民币权重仍处在美元、欧元之后的第三位,排在日元和英镑之前。

Inflation is showing no signs of slowing down, making it harder for workers to make ends meet.
美国的高通胀没有缓和迹象,这使得工薪阶层艰难维持生计。


The Consumer Price Index increased 8.3% from a year ago, higher than the 8.1% estimate, according to the US Bureau of Statistics.
美国劳工统计局的数据显示,美国消费者价格指数(CPI)同比上涨8.3%,高于8.1%的预期。


Although it was down slightly from the March peak, inflation is still growing at the fastest annual pace in about four decades.
尽管通胀率略低于3月份的峰值,但仍在以近40年来最快的年增长速度增长。


As of March, close to two-thirds, or 64%, of the US population was living paycheck to paycheck, just shy of the high of 65% in 2020, according to a LendingClub report.
美国在线借贷平台LendingClub的一份报告显示,截至今年3月,近三分之二(64%)的美国人成为月光族,略低于2020年65%的高点。


"The number of people living paycheck to paycheck today is reminiscent of the early days of the pandemic, and it has become the dominant lifestyle across income brackets," said Anuj Nayar, LendingClub's financial health officer.
LendingClub财务健康官阿努伊•纳亚尔称:“如今,月光族的数量让人想起新冠疫情初期,‘月光’已经成为不同收入阶层中占主导地位的生活方式。”
