This episode is aptly titled. In a time of division and uncertainty, Joseph R. Biden named his science team, and in so doing, said that science will take the lead in US policy decisions. It comes as a desperately needed breath of fresh air. We will discuss the hope this decision inspires, and the hope that we see in the reshaping of financial worlds, innovation and policy. We believe that this was the appropriate moment, in the midst of uncertainty and fear, to introduce this hopeful message.
