Indranil Ghosh shares the latest episode of Powering Prosperity Weekly. In this post, he shares an interview with Rachel Ziemba of The Street where they discuss the fiscal and infrastructure proposals in Biden’s US congressional address.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Powering Prosperity Weekly.

This newsletter looks at issues relating to the Global Economic Transition that will play out over the coming 20-30 years (see my introductory article on LinkedIn for additional context).

 As President Biden completed his first 100 days in office, I took the opportunity to talk to many folks in policymaking, business, and investing circles to take stock of what’s been achieved and what the priorities should be for the next 100 days. 

 In an article appearing in The Street, Rachel Ziemba and I dissected the fiscal and infrastructure proposals in Biden’s US congressional address. And in a Chief’s Forum sponsored by the Washington Times, I discussed the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in a livestream with former Whitehouse Chiefs of Staff and C-suite execs from across the economy. 

What to Look for in the Next 100 days?

For supporters of sustainable development, the general policy direction of President Biden’s first 100 days has been a refreshing tonic. Averting climate change, fighting inequality, supporting working families, and racial equity are finally centre stage in the American political dialog.

 

Key points include:

  • Biden’s tax proposals
  • $30 billion in Farm Aid
  • The sustainable investing framework
