Opinion | Learn to Stop Worrying and Love Debt

The important point for current discussion is that government borrowing costs are now very low and likely to stay low for a long time. As a result, the burden of debt — which was always exaggerated and was misunderstood in any case — isn’t what it used to be. The bottom line is that government debt just isn’t a major problem these days. That is, to act responsibly, we must stop worrying and learn to love debt.

How Biden Can Break the Senate Stonewall

When the election was called for President-elect Joe Biden, progressives across the nation breathed a sigh of relief. But as the congressional results became clear, many of us paused the celebration. Unless Democrats win both Georgia Senate seats in Jan. 5 runoffs, Mr. Biden will be the first Democrat to face a Republican Senate at the beginning of his first term since Grover Cleveland in 1885. How can he even hope to pursue a progressive agenda? The concern is well-founded because continued gridlock would be a disaster, blocking...

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

BERLIN/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Wirecard’s former boss stonewalled questions from lawmakers on Thursday when he was temporarily released from jail for an inquiry into post-war Germany’s biggest corporate fraud. Wirecard's former boss Markus Braun looks on, ahead of testifying before a German parliamentary committee in Berlin, Germany, November 19, 2020. Braun, who has denied any wrongdoing and said Wirecard was the victim of a wider fraud, is in jail awaiting trial. He told lawmakers on Thursday he had confidence in the German legal system but said little else in a prepared speech. German authorities have rejected any suggestion of improper government influence involving Wirecard.

Tom Williams/CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty ImagesTrump's post-election 'bloodlust'Since losing the election, "Trump seems to wake up every day with a kind of anxiety or hatred," Deitz said. There weren't any drum beaters, and this guy, Michael Ellis, he's precisely the kind of person you don't want at the agency." And Biden is not yet receiving the daily intelligence product that presidents and incoming presidents receive, known as the President's Daily Brief (PDB). "That being said, is Joe Biden going to be significantly disadvantaged because he's not getting the PDB today? I don't think so because he has a very talented team of national security advisors around him.

President-elect Joe Biden's coronavirus advisors will meet with the leading drug companies developing coronavirus vaccines this week, Ron Klain, Biden's newly selected chief of staff, said on Sunday. Despite the lack of access, Klain said Biden's team will meet with the drugmakers, naming Pfizer as one of those companies. "We're going to have meetings between our top scientific advisors and the officials of these drug companies," Klain said. Other leading companies with Covid-19 vaccine candidates in late-stage clinical trials include Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. A spokesperson for Biden's team was not immediately available for comment regarding which other companies the president-elect's advisors plan to meet with.

ET Presidential Transition Live Updates: Election Officials Say ‘There’s No Evidence’ of Breached Voting Systems A group of federal, state and local officials working with a Department of Homeland Security agency directly contradicted President Trump’s claims about voter fraud. Their call amounted to an acknowledgment that Mr. Biden will be declared the victor in the election. Only four sitting senators in the president’s party have publicly congratulated Mr. Biden on his victory. Mr. Biden’s decades of experience in Washington will likely soften those consequences, the Democrats said. Now, Mr. Biden has loaded his transition team with many of the same officials who were ready to brief the Trump appointees.

Their call amounted to an acknowledgment that Mr. Biden will be declared the victor in the election. “Yes, I think so,” Mr. Graham, a close Trump ally, also said about Mr. Biden receiving the briefings. “President-elect Biden should be receiving intelligence briefings right now,” said Ms. Collins, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It had been unclear how actively Mr. Biden, the incoming head of the party, would involve himself in negotiations before his inauguration. The case was based in part on an affidavit from a poll worker who said voters were being pressured to vote for Mr. Biden.
