I like big budgets and I cannot lie…. President Biden proposed a ginormous $6T budget for next fiscal year. It would push federal spending to its highest levels since WWII — and create deficits of at least $1.3T/year until 2030. The focus: infrastructure, public health, and education. Biden would nearly double the top capital gains tax rate on millionaires to 43.4%. TBD whether it'll fly in Congress, where Dems have a razor-slim majority.
Like a G6… more like G7. The Group of Seven = the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan. The G7 summit is set for June 11, but the group could greenlight a minimum global corporate tax rate before then. Last week, the US Treasury offered to accept a minimum corporate tax of 15%. A global minimum could allow G7 countries to stay competitive while raising taxes on corporate giants — key to funding Biden's budget proposal.
