Biden-Harris Administration: The First 100 Days

It has been an extraordinary few months in the U.S. An expansive vaccination program has offered a route to life after COVID-19. The economy is poised to see strong growth. And markets have seemed more active than ever.

In Washington, President Biden’s administration has started swiftly. This White House offers a return to a more familiar tone of government after President Trump, who broke with so many norms. It is also proving ambitious in areas ranging from combating COVID-19 to climate change, infrastructure to taxation.

This report takes stock of President Biden’s first 100 days. We examine the challenges he faces in Congress, where the Democrats’ majorities are slim and bipartisan support is proving difficult to achieve. We look at major domestic policy areas, from infrastructure to health care, and the most significant foreign policy issues, notably China. Brunswick works at the intersection of the political, financial, and social communities. We have drawn on the full range of our global capabilities to offer these insights.
