Other questions about "Article"

A: I believe you could also say, "Some repoters have partnered with sponsors for money."
Q: The article says "Buying government bonds at these levels is perilous because economic data may improve, ",

I think it means:
Buying bonds is not a good idea because economy may improve.
i.e.
Buying bonds is a good idea when economy is going down.

So I think "taking more risk (buying more bonds?)" will benefit investors at the time of global downturn.

But the article says
"taking more risk could leave investors nastily exposed to a global downturn."

I am confused....

p.s.
Or "taking more risk" means "buying more stocks"??


Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
The global bond market’s soaring performance has left investors queasy about the ride ahead.

The Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate index has earned 2.3 percent through March 28, its best quarter since mid-2017. But with yields sinking across major sovereign markets, investors now face a dilemma. Buying government bonds at these levels is perilous because economic data may improve, while taking more risk could leave investors nastily exposed to a global downturn.
A: I think your understanding is correct.

Bonds have fixed returns compared to stocks which can greatly increase in value in a good economy. But stocks are riskier in case of economic downturn. Currently there are mixed signals about whether things will improve or get worse, hence the dilemma. Safer bonds and get less, riskier stocks and get more

PS. Not an economist
Q: I read the article and watched the propaganda film. I have more than a few disagreements on what's depicted in the film, but in most parts I have to admit that it's true, especially the part where they talk about our educational system. The mindset of the Japanese people hasn't changed much since when exactly, I wonder. It's creepy to to be part of this society, to be honest,where everyone thinks the same way, acts the same way, dresses the same way, otherwise you get left out and be isolated. The most scariest thing of all, this is the Japan Abe wants back. And, we can't just let him unless we want to get ourselves in a huge trouble like we did in WW2. soa natural?
A: I have both read the article and watched the propaganda film. I have more than a few disagreements on what's depicted in the film, but in most parts I have to admit that it's true,
Q: I had already read the article before my father told it to me.

Q: I think the article should say
"he would be in the absence of progress" instead of "he would in the absence of progress"
Correct???

Context>>>>>>>>>>>>
President Donald Trump said he has asked China to immediately remove all tariffs on U.S. agriculture, including beef and pork, citing progress in trade talks between the two nations.

In making the demand, Trump noted in a tweet Friday that he refrained from increasing U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods to 25 percent from 10 percent on March 1, as he said he would in the absence of progress toward an agreement. Faxes and phone calls to China’s ministries of commerce and foreign affairs, and the office in charge of trade talks, went unanswered Saturday outside office hours.
A: In that example, they omit the verb after "would" but it still sounds natural.

"he would be doing in the absence of progress" is the more complete version.

It means, sometime in the past, Trump said that if there is no progress, he will refrain from increasing tariffs. Now, in the present, there is no progress, so he refrained from increasing tariffs. So he did as he said he would.
