US: U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday signed legislation temporarily raising the government’s borrowing limit to $28.9 trillion, pushing off the deadline for debt default only until December.
Without the increase in the debt ceiling, the U.S. Treasury had estimated it would run out of money to pay the nation’s bills on Oct. 18.
The $480 billion increase in the borrowing limit signed by Biden is expected to be exhausted by Dec. 3.
Following weeks of partisan fighting, the Senate approved the short-term fix last week and the House of Representatives passed it on Tuesday.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell wrote in a letter to Biden after the Senate vote that he would not help Democrats again in raising the debt limit.
McConnell wants Democrats to use a procedural move known as reconciliation, which would not require Republican votes, to raise the borrowing authority. Democrats have rejected that as an option for lifting the cap.
Eurozone: Britain’s plan for a “green industrial revolution” has already attracted billions of pounds of investment, the government said on Thursday ahead of an investment summit in London which will bring together some of the world’s most powerful financiers.
Government data showed that investment worth 5.85 billion pounds ($8.01 billion) had been delivered or committed since November 2020, when Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched a 10-point plan to prioritize green technology and climate goals in Britain’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The plan targets 42 billion pounds of private investment by 2030 in energy, buildings, transport, innovation, and the natural environment, alongside the creation of 250,000 “green jobs”.
Britain is keen to promote its green credentials before hosting the COP26 U.N. climate conference in Glasgow next month, where it will try to broker a complex international deal to stall rising global temperatures.
The government also wants to attract funding that will help it gain an edge in the developed world’s race to capitalize on the demand for better green technology and the highly skilled, highly-paid jobs that should come with it.
