US: President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday that failure to pass his huge social and infrastructure spending package could contribute to America’s decline, while lawmakers in his Democratic Party wrangled over its price tag.
Squabbling Democratic moderates and progressives dealt Biden a setback last week when they failed to move ahead with his proposed $1 trillion infrastructure bill or a planned $3.5 trillion social spending bill, which is now facing cuts.
“These bills are not about left versus right or moderate versus progressive,” Biden said in Michigan, arguing the bills would make the United States more competitive and restore its role as a world leader.
“We’re at risk of losing our edge as a nation … To oppose these investments is to be complicit in America’s decline,” he said.
Democrats fear that if they fail to pass the infrastructure bill they could be punished by angry voters in November 2022 congressional elections. Rebuilding U.S. infrastructure was one of Biden’s main election promises.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank is closely watching inflation expectations and wage developments as predicting the length of disruptions caused the economy’s post-pandemic reopening is difficult, ECB President Christine Lagarde said.
“We should not overreact to supply shortages or rising energy prices, as our monetary policy cannot directly affect those phenomena,” Lagarde said in a speech.
“But we will pay close attention to wage developments and inflation expectations to ensure that inflation expectations are anchored at 2%,” she said.
Lagarde added that she still expected these “frictions” to be transitory, repeating the bank’s long-standing line that the inflation spike will abate next year.
