Happy Birthday! One year later, the IRA is having a major impact

On August 16, 2022, U.S. President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law.

Indeed, none of the proposed mergers have materialized. The most plausible deal (between Stratasys and Desktop Metal) has been abandoned.
