“Fiden’s maneuver will not make a difference in the United States,” writes Knock editor-in-chief Bert Buldink. “He leads Europe and even Alexander de Crowe.”
Joe Biden is never surprised. In recent weeks, the US president has issued a clear statement following the sentencing of police officer Derek Zhou, who killed George Floyd (“This could be a major step on the path to justice in the United States”). He came up with the biggest climate projects and showed the geopolitical leadership at the climate-related leaders summit. With his highly effective vaccination strategy, he is doing better than expected. Sleepy Joe did not sleep. He rebuilds America with a bulldozer.
Joe Biden is never surprised.

With his highly effective vaccination strategy, he is doing better than expected. Sleepy Joe did not sleep. He rebuilds America with a bulldozer. Unlike many politicians, the president’s words are sometimes less than his actions. This does not bother Pitton, because a position against the neo-liberal tradition does not require loud capital letters today. For example, when he recently stressed the importance of trade unions, he said, “I am the leader of the unions and I never kept it a secret.” It stands alone. You do not find the head of government of Belgium, or even the Flemish leader of the Social Democrats, so easy to say today. In recent weeks, Biden has been highlighting another important aspect, even though at first glance it may seem like a semantic issue. In fact, it may be Biden’s most cunning political move. Last week he took to Twitter to summarize in three words: ‘Care is infrastructure.’ It is difficult to overstate the importance of those three terms – ‘maintenance is infrastructure’. This is the way Biden protects his tremendous investment in the American health care system, which has been flawed for decades and only works well when you are actually rich. Biden wants to invest not only in bricks – by building hospitals or residential care centers – but also by people. At work, viz. She mainly thinks about money for home nursing, extra jobs and pay rises for employees who are usually women of color. It is part of his U.S. program of a massive recovery project that includes many traditional infrastructure projects such as highways, airports, electricity networks, school buildings or the fast internet. It swears in the financial-economic church. Classic economic recipes preserved by many American economists, for example, agent economist Kert Pearsman, suggest that in a major crisis such as the Govt-19 epidemic, the government should pour huge sums of money into the economy. But, as the classic story goes, that money can only be spent on ‘infrastructure’. In a strict sense it means: bridges and roads, but Pierceman also talks about climate initiatives or digitalization. The reason is that these investments are only one way in principle, because you only pay once for a new bridge. An additional nurse, on the other hand, is at the expense of a continuum or ‘continuum’ of texts. Biden sees it completely differently. Without good health care, it can affect the economy. A fifty-year-old woman who has to take care of her sick mother can’t just take a job on the side. Of course, the question of where Biden will get the money to pay for those investments remains relevant – it is unclear whether raising the corporate tax will be enough as he planned. But that’s another thing, definitely speaking. The real question today is whether investing in healthcare is a good idea. There may be little doubt about that. Biden’s maneuver is not going to make a difference in the United States. Biden is also leading the way for Europe and Alexander de Crowe because the Belgian health system could use an upgrade. In the years to come, we will seek additional maintenance at the right time. Now the pressure to ease corona activity is enormous, while intensive care units are overflowing, with only one proper compulsion. Extra beds, caregivers, nurses, emergency hospitals and training. Increase pay and make work more attractive. Only then will we be armed against new viruses. Invest in health care now. Not tomorrow, but today. Do it in bulk. Anyone who still doubts today whether the health sector is the backbone of our economic infrastructure is not really paying attention.
