US President Joe Biden clearly wants to leave his mark on America.
In the first few months of his presidency, he has launched transformative initiatives ranging from a $2T climate-focused infrastructure bill to a hike in the US corporate tax rate. He’s made no secret of his desire to ween the US off fossil fuels, and on his first day in office, he cancelled the Keystone Pipeline. A progressive or a protectionist, or both?
