Here Are The Full “Blue Wave” Implications For Politics, Markets And The Economy

The Democrats are on the verge of winning the two Georgia Senate elections, according to news agencies as multiple sources have called the race for Raphael Warnock while Decision Desk HQ has called the race for Ossoff.

Later in 2021, we would expect incremental increases in taxes to finance similar amounts of new spending, though both would be a fraction of what the Biden campaign proposed.” This means that, at least for the next two years, the US is set to descend into that circle of monetary hell reserved for nations which openly engage in helicopter money (everyone knows what happens after).
