US: President Joe Biden will unveil his vision for a mass ramp-up in U.S. infrastructure spending Wednesday in Pittsburgh, a city the White House views as a prime example of an old manufacturing hub revitalized by new industries from health care to technology.
The administration wants the same type of reorientation that Pittsburgh saw to provide fresh opportunities to working-class cities and towns across the country. While the president’s plan does feature traditional road, bridge and airport projects, the package also includes items like high-speed broadband, along with long-neglected priorities to update the electrical grid, replace lead pipes in homes and schools and retrofit and weatherize commercial buildings.
Brian Deese, one of Biden’s top economic aides, told senior congressional Democrats on Tuesday that the infrastructure package would amount to about $2 trillion over eight years, according to a person familiar with the discussion. The proposal is vastly bigger in size and breadth than the nation’s last long-term infrastructure bill — a $305 billion, five-year surface-transportation initiative in 2015.
Eurozone: A financial services cooperation pact agreed by Britain and the European Union to enable regulators to share information forsees two meetings a year and stops short of any substantive reference to market access, a document showed on Tuesday.
Britain left the EU’s orbit on Dec. 31, cutting the City of London from its largest export customer.
The pact had not been expected to create a forum for deciding on market access as this will up to Brussels granting “equivalence” for specific financial activities.
But the four-page memorandum of understanding seen by Reuters makes scant reference to access, saying that both sides will “jointly endeavour to pursue a robust and ambitious bilateral regulatory cooperation”.
