U.S. National Economic Council Director Brian Deese addresses reporters at the top of the daily press briefing at the White House in Washington, U.S. January 22, 2021. REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Biden administration plans to discuss the need for economic stimulus with a group of senators on Sunday, White House national economic council director Brian Deese said on Friday, as it seeks to build support for what it sees as a critical round of new coronavirus relief. Without decisive action, we risk falling into a very serious economic hole, even more serious than the crisis we find ourselves,” Deese told reporters at a White House briefing. Democratic President Joe Biden, who took office on Wednesday, has proposed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package. Women, minorities and low-income service workers have been disproportionately impacted, with Black and Hispanic workers facing higher jobless rates than white workers.

Democrats spent the four years of the Trump administration talking tough on Russia, and now with President Joe Biden in the White House, they face an immediate challenge: addressing one of the worst hacking campaigns in U.S. history. Democrats who watched Donald Trump as president consistently defer to Russian President Vladimir Putin are eager to take a stronger stance. “CISA’s not resourced to do remediation and reconstitution of federal networks,” he said. The Biden administration also faces a difficult question in what to do about the hack. In the Biden administration’s first two news conferences, White House press secretary Jen Psaki stressed that dealing with the SolarWinds hack was a priority, but that it’s still early in the administration.

Oil falls as China COVID-19 cases trigger clampdowns

LONDON (Reuters) - Oil prices fell on Friday, retreating further from 11-month highs hit last week, weighed down by worries that new pandemic restrictions in China will curb fuel demand in the world’s biggest oil importer. Recovering fuel demand in China underpinned market gains late last year while the United States and Europe lagged, but that source of support is fading as a fresh wave of COVID-19 cases has sparked new restrictions. “A rise in Chinese infection numbers is of particular concern .. because China is among the world’s largest oil consumers and the market that helped oil prices recover the most”, she added. “Global oil demand could decline marginally in the first quarter of 2021 as many regions, including many European countries, have re-introduced mobility restrictions,” analysts at Fitch Ratings said in a note. “The positive effects of vaccination programmes on the oil demand recovery may not be visible for several months until a critical mass of population is inoculated.”(The story refiles to fix typo in headline).

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Thursday requiring air passengers wear masks. President Joe Biden on Thursday signed an executive order mandating mask-wearing on most forms of domestic travel in the first act of federal intervention on social distancing in the skies during the pandemic. All 11 major US airlines and Amtrak currently require masks, but the order gives federal backing to enforce the rule. Biden also signed an executive order on Wednesday mandating Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines be followed for mask-wearing while in federal buildings or on federal lands. The effectiveness of mask-wearing policies has also encouraged airlines to ditch seat-blocking policies, confident in onboard high-efficiency particulate air systems.

In the latest episode, hosts Jessyn Farrell and Nick Hanauer spoke with The Economist's Idrees Kahloon about the economic problems the new Biden administration is facing. It's an economic mess unlike any in modern history and President Biden is going to be expected to address it all. "Containing the fallout" of the economic downturn "is the immediate challenge that President Biden is going to face," Kahloon explained. Once first aid has been applied to the economy, Biden needs to start looking at medium- and long-term economic goals. President Biden needs to keep in mind "the fact that the economy is shifting, that service sector industries are being disrupted by digitization and technologies," Kahloon said.
