Why Delaying the Second Covid Vaccine Shot Is Messy
As hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19 rise, governments are grappling with whether to prioritize getting a first shot of vaccine into as many arms as possible, or to take a slower approach that reserves some of the limited supply to deliver a second dose at the optimal interval to attain maximum protection. Some governments seem willing to accept the tradeoff of lower immunity to inoculate more people. Some scientists have cautioned that untested timing regimens have the potential to unde

Why State Aid Stirs Controversy From China to the EU
In theory, the system of free trade driving the world economy is supposed to provide a "level playing field" for all. In practice, countries have long complained that rivals unfairly dish out aid in the form of state-backed subsidies to boost favored companies -- often as they themselves do the same. The U.S. has been a vocal critic of European subsidies, notably aircraft financing, and has been focusing its attention increasingly on China's backing for its companies; in turn the European Union

Biden Agenda Includes More Electric Cars, Work Visas: QuickTake
The promises Joe Biden made as a candidate fall roughly into two categories: those easy to carry out in his first days in the Oval Office, and those that will be exceedingly difficult no matter how long he tries.
