Abstract

President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office have been marked by bold legislative objectives. Against the backdrop of an expansive $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill, a proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill, and a new $1.8 trillion American Families Plan, some experts have even drawn comparisons to Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal. In this Q&A, Thomas Gift discusses whether those comparisons are merited, how Biden’s economic agenda is shaping up, and why it may be “now or never” for the White House to push through a raft of progressive policies.
