Ones and Tooze co-hosts Adam Tooze and Cameron Abadi discuss what the infrastructure bill will and won’t do for the industry.

President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill allocates $15 billion to making electric cars more popular in the United States. One this episode of Ones and Tooze, Cameron and Adam discuss how that money will be spent and why the United States is still way behind China when it comes to infrastructure for electric cars.

Also on the episode: Why COVID-19 has been terrible for the U.S. health care economy.

About Ones and Tooze:  Foreign Policy economics columnist Adam Tooze, a history professor and a popular author, is encyclopedic about basically everything: from the COVID shutdown, to climate change, to pasta sauce. On our new podcast, Tooze and FP deputy editor Cameron Abadi will look at two data points each week that explain the world: one drawn from the week’s headlines and the other from just about anywhere else Tooze takes us.
