Sánchez And Biden Seal “The Rota Pact”: More Ships And More Marines In Exchange For Investment

The war in Ukraine has changed everything. So has the relationship between Spain and the United States. The ‘Rota Pact’ has been key for Biden to speak of Sánchez now as a “friend” and for the two to exchange confidences. But it has not been easy to make concrete. Months, even years, of work have been done behind the scenes on this 180-degree turn in Spain’s relationship with the United…

“Markets In General Just Be Really Happy With Biden’s Lead”

Esty Dwek (Natixis)| “Markets in general just be really happy with Biden’s lead because it’s looking less and less likely that you’re going to have a contested election which means that by November 4th, we probably know who the next president is going to be, and if it is this Democratic sweep, then we also know there’s going to be a lotof fiscal spending in 2021.”
