In the weeks following the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt rallied America's industrial might by creating the War Production Board, one of the most dynamic public-private partnerships in history.

President Joe Biden enlists the business sector's help in COVID fight
The New York Times reports that the Biden administration plans to enlist business leaders in an effort to combat the coronavirus.

President Biden has compared the fight against the coronavirus to wartime mobilization, but with the exception of pharmaceutical companies, the private sector has done relatively little in the effort.

President Biden's plan to fight the coronavirus includes some of the country's largest corporate lobbying groups as well as some big-name companies.

Ford and Gap Inc. will donate more than 100 million masks for free distribution. Pro sports leagues will set aside more than 100 stadiums and arenas to be used as mass vaccination sites. Uber, PayPal and Walgreens will provide free rides for people to get to vaccination sites. Best Buy, Dollar General and Target will give their workers paid time off to get a shot. And the White House will urge many more companies to do likewise.

Many of the steps are fairly straightforward. That they have not happened already is a reflection of the Trump administration's disorganized pandemic response. Trump officials oversaw a highly successful program to develop vaccines, but otherwise often failed to take basic measures that other countries did take.

"We've been overwhelmed with outreach from companies saying, we want to help, we want to help, we want to help,'" said Andy Slavitt, a White House pandemic adviser. "What a missed opportunity the first year of this virus was."



Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were fans of the "classical" style. They hated modern "degenerate" art and architecture.

Biden Revokes a Trump Order Seeking Classical' Civic Architecture
An executive order that former President Donald J. Trump issued in the waning days of his administration, which sought to make classical architecture the default style for new federal buildings, was revoked this week by President Biden as the White House continues its sweeping rollback of the previous administration's policies, the New York Times reports.

Trump's executive order, which he signed in December after losing his bid for re-election, was titled "Promoting Beautiful Federal Civic Architecture," and it praised Greco-Roman architecture as being "beautiful" while describing modernist designs as "ugly and inconsistent." Those who championed the order heralded it as a return to a bygone era of federalist style. The American Institute of Architects, which had said it was "appalled" by the Trump order, praised the decision to revoke it.
