Key takeaways:

  • With the election tomorrow, we highlight the potential implications of a Biden Administration on life sciences, healthcare, and consumer product companies and investors.
  • We have previously published articles addressing the impact of the Trump Administration on these important sectors of the economy and believe many of the trends we identified would continue if President Trump is reelected.
  • New policies may be implemented by a Biden Administration through a variety of mechanisms, ranging from executive orders and regulatory agency policy pronouncements to rulemaking and legislation. Trump Administration health policies that relied on executive orders and informal mechanisms for their implementation may be readily reversed without the need for rulemaking or legislation should Biden win the election.
