In the last week, we watched President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump suggests some states may 'pay nothing' as part of unemployment plan Trump denies White House asked about adding him to Mount Rushmore Trump, US face pivotal UN vote on Iran MORE panic at his sinking poll numbers and decide to issue a slew of executive orders — more to create talking points for his campaign about how he was “lowering drug prices” and with little consideration for the practical reality that the policies do nothing to provide relief to Medicare beneficiaries with their out-of-pocket costs. The most troubling is the one not yet released, which the president has described as imposing deep price cuts on physician-administered treatments in Medicare by importing prices set by foreign governments based on the “patient unfriendly” quality-adjusted life year (QALY) metric. … [Read more...] about Is the administration looking out for Americans living with disabilities?
Moreover, Biden’s call for patience isn’t realistic. On August 1, EU-Vietnam went into force, Europe’s 44th trade agreement. The U.S. lags by a stunning 30 – that’s right, 30 – trade deals. This puts America’s farmers, ranchers and businesses at a real disadvantage in markets around the world. You see this in the plight of Maine’s lobster industry, for example. Canadian lobsters go into Europe at zero tariff because Ottawa has a trade agreement with Brussels. The U.S. doesn’t. The exact same thing is happening to U.S. dairy. There’s only one fix, and that’s for the U.S. to sign more trade agreements, especially one with Europe. … [Read more...] about Biden’s pre-Trump language on trade needs updating
But policy should not get ahead of technological and financial feasibility — and options should be realistically laid out for farmers. There is also a need for caution in using surplus foodgrain to produce ethanol. And while removing the shackles on raw material supply can have definite benefits, it cannot make a significant difference to biofuel production as long as the supply-chain infrastructure that is required to deliver biofuels to the final consumer remains inadequate. To address this issue, the new policy envisages investment to the tune of ₹5,000 crore in building bio-refineries and offering other incentives over the next few years. The government should also take steps to remove policy barriers that have discouraged private investment in building supply chains. Until that happens, India’s huge biofuel potential will continue to remain largely untapped. … [Read more...] about Policy on biofuels: Green push?

Matt DiBenedetto — Finished 7th: “It was tough. The car had our tongue hanging out all day, so it’s good we made improvements from yesterday. We were really struggling yesterday and our team worked super-hard and made some good improvements so we could at least run further up there. We didn’t play a lot of defense all day and had to drive the thing for all it was worth, so just glad we were able to get a top 10 out of it finishing seventh. You can take a car that’s a struggle and something that we’re not satisfied with and struggled with all weekend and make some improvements with, but if we take a car like that and finish seventh with it and move on, that just shows the strength of our team and how we keep getting better. If you can make your bad days a top 10, sometimes that’s all you can hope for.” … [Read more...] about What drivers said after Sunday Cup race at Michigan
