Abstract

President Joe Biden came into office with a plan to “Build Back Better” following the COVID-19 pandemic and four years of the Trump presidency. A key part of this agenda is a $3.5 trillion spending plan covering affordable and public housing, infrastructure, childcare, and measures to tackle climate change. Glyn Robbins writes that success for Biden’s spending plan in Congress could ease many of the pressures now felt throughout US society. But failure, he argues, could add to the already growing disillusionment with government, and open the door for Donald Trump’s return in 2024.
