THE GLOBAL ECONOMY: China's economy is teetering on the brink of disaster. If the bottom falls out, the whole world could be dragged down by the collapse of its second-largest economy. Now the country needs people to actually use, and pay for, everything that's been built," Insider's Linette Lopez writes.

The four weeks provision was recently presented as a compromise to the 12 weeks Biden initially proposed. Asked Monday if he had concerns about the paid leave proposal, Manchin said: "I'm concerned about an awful lot of things." Even if Democrats were to settle on four weeks paid parental leave, the U.S. would still lag numerous countries. Fresh opposition to paid family leave, a priority for Biden and progressives, could deal a significant setback to negotiations over the bill.

WASHINGTON — Democrats in Washington and across the country have been wondering the same thing for months: how they can wear down Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz. Arizona activists took the opposite approach, pursuing Sinema into a bathroom earlier this month to harangue her. Sinema described her own legislative philosophy — and how it changed when she was in the Arizona legislature — in a 2009 book. The challenge for Democratic leaders is not that Sinema is enigmatic or erratic, it's that she is holding firm to positions they don't agree with. But if they can pass Biden's plan in some form, it will not be in spite of Sinema.

Spokespeople for Trump Media and Digital World did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the investor reaction to their deal.

Investors bearish on the stock point to failures of other right-wing social media apps such as Parler. SPACs had lost much of their luster with retail investors before the Trump media deal came along.

"I'm a climate change activist, and I talk about climate change all the time, but you have to meet people where they are." Some activists have begun to argue that a wider proportion of Americans are amenable to policies that combat climate change if you talk less about "climate change" — because the issue has become so polarized — and more about the specific impact on jobs, the economy and the environment. Instead of climate change, he talks about air quality, forest fires and the impact of decreasing snowpack from warmer winters on ski resorts in his district. It's a message Biden has emphasized at times, too, such as his saying in his joint address to Congress this year, "When I think climate change, I think jobs." Sabine Marx, the director of research for the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Earth Institute, has described the approach as "leading to" climate change, rather than "leading with" climate change.

The Democrats’ Wealth-Tax Mirage
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( The Editorial Board | ) www.wsj.com   time to read: 1 min
Democrats are scrambling to finance their spending bill after Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema shot down their plans to raise corporate and individual income-tax rates. Thank you, Senator. But now Democrats are reaching deep into their grab-bag of revenue tricks and may pull out a wealth tax on “billionaires.”Nancy Pelosi confirmed on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday that the Democrats’ spending bill will probably “have a wealth tax.” Give the Speaker credit for candor. The Biden Administration is pretending that Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden’s plan to tax unrealized capital gains of “billionaires” is something else.

WASHINGTON—Democrats are considering a new tax on billionaires to help pay for President Biden’s agenda. The tax would help raise money to pay for spending proposals, including expanded child tax credit and climate-change policies. While Mr. Biden didn’t support the idea during the 2020 campaign, he turned to it after a different capital-gains tax change failed to get enough support among some congressional Democrats and after Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) objected to other tax-rate increases.

Still, the remnants of pepper spray and tear gas continue to plague some officers each time they put on the same riot gear they wore while retaking the Capitol. An unnamed MPD officer told Insider the fire department "came by, and they literally just hosed down all of our gear." Still, the remnants of pepper spray and tear gas continue to plague some officers each time they put on the same riot gear they wore while retaking the Capitol. Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers has repeatedly argued the White House is understating the problem and is fueling further inflation.

What's happening: The Biden administration wanted to raise the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%, while Democrats in the House had pitched a 26.5% rate. Yet lawmakers have indicated they're pivoting away from corporate tax hikes due to opposition from Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a crucial swing vote. But the apparent move away from corporate tax increases could feed the recent stock market rally. In a note to clients last month, Goldman Sachs warned that potential changes to the corporate tax code could hit profits in 2022. Goldman's Alec Phillips said last Thursday that he thinks Democrats could circle back to raising the corporate tax rate — at least a little.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill to reform the private equity industry. Private equity firms typically focus on hypergrowth, but can still profit if companies go bankrupt. Private equity firms are, as the name suggests, privately owned by a limited group of investors or directors. Even if they push the company into bankruptcy, the private equity firm can still make money by selling off the company's parts. Warren explained during last week's hearing how private equity firms have such a strong hold over the economy, stressing the urgency for reform.

Democrats are inching toward new targeted taxes on billionaires to pay for their safety net expansion. "We probably will have a wealth tax," Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday. They're rushing to wrap up talks with holdouts Manchin and Sinema, who are demanding smaller spending plans. The concept bears a strong similarity to the wealth tax that Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts popularized during the 2020 presidential campaign.

"Better off to talk about the future than to focus on the past in every election," Blunt, the No. "But again I think what President Trump could do that would be most helpful right now would be focus on the policies that aren't working.

On Jan. 6, senators were evacuated together from the Senate chamber to an undisclosed secure location. But Sen. Angus King, citing COVID, left the location and opted to hide in his office instead. "The hell I am," Angus told the officer before leaving and going to his own office in the Hart Senate Office Building. King wasn't the only lawmaker who was in his office rather than the secure location. Rep. Pramila Jayapal later tested positive for COVID-19, blaming the unmasked Republicans for creating a "superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack."

Private equity and hedge funds accounted for over $625 million in political spending during the cycle leading up to the 2020 election, with the lion's share going to campaign contributions, according to new research. The study tallied the total spent on campaign contributions and lobbying during the 2020 cycle from both individuals and political action committees linked to various funds. Private equity spent much more on lobbying ($70 million) than hedge funds did ($8.5 million), the research shows. Spending was more evenly split when it came to campaign contributions. More than $262 million came from those in the private equity sector, while over $285 million came from the hedge fund world.

A growing number of colleges are removing student loans from financial aid packages, offering grants instead. Only a small number of schools have taken those steps as the student debt crisis continues to grow. So we went to our alumni and said: 'We want to start taking away student loans.'" Many borrowers are still trapped with student debt for decades after graduating, with some fearing they will die with their loans. "Cancelling $50,000 in student debt would completely wipe out student loans for 84% of borrowers, including more than 3 million borrowers who have been repaying their loans for more than 20 years," Warren told Insider.

AP Photo/Susan WalshUS judges face tighter stock-trading rules under proposed legislation in Washington, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. The proposals include requiring judges to report stock trades of more than $1,000 within 45 days. The bills follow a WSJ investigation showing judges violated laws related to stock holding while hearing court cases. A bipartisan group of lawmakers will introduce legislation aimed at tightening rules on stock trading for federal judges, according to The Wall Street Journal. The proposed legislation comes after the Federal Reserve said last week it will ban policymakers from buying individual stocks, making that move following controversial equity holdings by two regional presidents who have already stepped down.
