The $369 billion Biden Bill on Climate is the biggest bill ever. It was put through with Biden's fellow senators and his long experience in the Senate of the US through the efforts of Senator Coon and Hickenlooper who took a new approach to negotiating with Senator Manchin appealing to his place in history and in the party. Biden said while signing the bill "Joe I never doubted for a moment." Senator Schumer of New York did the negotiations and persevered till the end when Manchin was on board. Adjustments were made to allow increase in drilling to bring down oil prices to create a win-win for all so that it could be called The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 as pharmaceutical prices would also come down with the government retaking the right to negotiate pharmaceutical prices lost under Republicans. It is also a Win for Europe, India, and the World.

During the pandemic women increasingly stayed at home while men continued to work. Figures from Bureau of Labor Statistics show women ended up with doing even more household chores than men in 2020 compared to 2019. As a result women during the coronavirus feel worn out or burned out in addition to losing income. WSJ offers ways women can tackle this problem both by getting men to share in household chores, and finding employers who are family friendly as the coronavirus pandemic declines in 2022.
Much lower incomes for the 40% of Chinese who live in rural areas, and the worsening inequality during the pandemic with workers losing jobs or on low pay, with China lacking a system of unemployment insurance like the US and EU countries, have created a new urgency for president Xi to tackle these problems. Glaring inequality with IPO's creating new millionaires or billionaires are frowned upon and president Xi personally axed the Ant IPO. After a crackdown on corruption involving about 1 million people, Xi has shifted investment to rural areas to improve conditions of living. State run enterprises are seen as more reliable in achieving Xi's vision of less inequality after the excesses of unregulated capitalist development since 1990.
Research on increasing the pathogenic power of the virus by engineering part of its genome is seen as a possible cause of the pandemic in these articles in WSJ and other media sources, based on new memos released under the Freedom if Information Act. These memos by virologists to Dr.Fauci at NIH in the US gave their analysis after their first look at the virus genome for coronavirus. The lifting of the ban on such research by US Health ministry and the NIH agency in 2018 led to labs in overseas locations being funded with US funds to conduct such research.

The package cleared the US Congress on March 10, 2021. By the end of 2022 the OECD forecast is for a US economy that is larger than forecast before the pandemic.

We took a different way to help millions around the world build educated informed mindsets that affects and shapes their lives. For a future that is open, global and digital, with everyone having access to high quality information. We believe in the renewal of America, renewal of Europe, the renewal of India, the rest of Asia, Latin America and Africa. The renewal of our supply chains, health, education, infrastructure, as we rebuild our countries after the pandemic. Literacy and knowledge we believe cannot thrive and grow in a world of web bots, web crawlers, or AI. This requires human curiosity, human learning, and human imagination. We take as inspiration the saying- “One has to be free, and as broad as sky. One has to have a mind that is crystal clear, only then can truth shine in it.” Every contribution whether big or small is precious- in this crisis and ahead.
