Macro Matters: Biden's reset on US foreign policy - with Jeffrey Wright

Biden vowed to ‘reset’ the approach to foreign policy and rekindle international relationships. But how has he fared? Join Stephanie Kelly and special guest Jeffrey Wright as they discuss repairing allyship in Europe, the US China relationship and what this means for the macro environment.

This week on Macro Matters, our host Stephanie Kelly is joined by a special guest from across the Atlantic. We welcome Jeffrey Wright, analyst at Eurasia Group's North America practice, who shares his expertise in US fiscal, foreign, trade, and regulatory policy, as well as presidential politics.

Part 1 begins by summarising Biden’s approach to foreign policy and outlines the key themes we’re seeing from Biden’s first 100 days in office. The focus then shifts to the climate agenda and the US China stand-off.

Part 2 talks more about allies in Europe and rivals in Russia before touching on covid diplomacy and third countries.
