Although our cities and communities are rebounding from the economic devastation brought on by COVID-19, the consequences from the societal shakeups the pandemic created will continue to shape the health of the U.S. economy for years to come. Longtime financial observers survey how the economy has changed in the past 18 months, discuss the impact of the Biden administration’s approach to today’s economic challenges, and forecast how the national economic climate will continue to adjust to a world still emerging from worldwide COVID lockdowns.

James Grant is the founder and editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer. Byron R. Wien (moderator) is vice chairman of Private Wealth Solutions at Blackstone. They are trustees of the New-York Historical Society.
