Happy Thanksgiving! We took short a hiatus from the podcast to spend more time at our day jobs at New Consensus. We developed and pushed out a memo to the Biden transition team that details how he could lead a multi-trillion dollar economic rebuilding project even if Democrats don't win the Senate races in Georgia. In this episode, we delve into the details of that plan. We recorded this episode at the beginning of that process right after the election when we were first putting this plan together, so some of it may sound a little dated.
