WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday will formally introduce his picks for his economic policy team, including Janet Yellen for treasury secretary. If confirmed by the Senate, Yellen would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department. In addition to other roles she held at the Federal Reserve, Yellen also served as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton. Biden’s top choice for director of the National Economic Council is Brian Deese, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. The president-elect is expected to make the announcement later this week, when he will also name his Domestic Policy Council director, two sources familiar with the matter said Monday.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan. It would help establish the United States as a global leader on climate, potentially helping convince other big emitters to axe fossil fuel subsidies. Estimates of the value of fossil fuel subsidies, which mainly take the form of tax breaks, vary. Biden and Congress will be under pressure to reduce the federal deficit by cutting such tax breaks.

Mamdani is one of three South Asian members of the Democratic Socialists of America who won historic down-ballot races earlier this month. Their wins point to the growing prominence of young South Asians on the left, many of whom, in the past half-decade, have transitioned from community activism to electoral politics. This year wasn’t the first time South Asian socialists found success in local elections. Some South Asian Democratic Socialists of America candidates pitched long-shot bids this year, and even in defeat, they’re laying the groundwork for the future. A win would have made the Sri Lankan immigrant the first Muslim and South Asian woman elected to the lower chamber.

President-elect Biden represents a new chance to implement strong gun violence protections. A study in 2017 found that, compared with other leading causes of death, gun violence was one of the least researched in relation to its mortality rate. Many interpreted this directive to include research on gun violence, which effectively led to the shutdown of any meaningful firearms research. In December 2019, for the first time in 20 years, Congress approved $25 million dollars for gun violence research. The Brady Campaign, a national nonprofit gun control advocacy group, announced that now President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were the strongest gun violence protection ticket in our country's history.

ATLANTA — Jon Ossoff is ending the Trump era the same way he began it: as a young Democrat unexpectedly at the center of the political universe. If Democrats win both seats, they'll end the Trump era by giving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tiebreaking vote in the Senate. It would also be vindication for Ossoff, whose loss in the House race set off a familiar circular firing squad among Democrats. But the data [from Ossoff's race] told a different story," she said. She won in 2018 by 317 votes, flipping the state House seat formerly occupied by Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Joe Biden announced six top economic job picks on Monday, but he may set off his first confirmation fight by nominating Neera Tanden as head of the Office of Management and Budget. Several Republicans suggested she would face GOP resistance in the Senate during the confirmation process. President-elect Joe Biden announced half a dozen picks for top economic jobs in his administration on Monday. It's unclear so far how they would vote on Tanden, but the senators could decide whether her confirmation is successful. If Democrats win both races in Georgia, the party would hold a threadbare majority with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris casting the tiebreaking vote on much of Biden's economic agenda — including Tanden's nomination.

New York (CNN Business) President Donald Trump repeatedly warned Americans that if they failed to reelect him, the stock market would implode . You are so lucky to have me as your President," Trump wrote on September 2 . "The stock market has this great ability to look through immediate headwinds to a future that appears brighter." Yet the V-shaped recovery on Wall Street is another example of how the pandemic is worsening inequality. And the surging stock market is likely exacerbating the divide between rich and poor because affluent families have far more skin in the game.

President Donald Trump suggested on Fox Business that several world leaders have supported his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud. Numerous world leaders have congratulated and recognized Joe Biden as the president-elect, almost immediately after the race was called for him. Immediately after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential race, several world leaders either made contact with or congratulated him on his victory. In an interview given just a few days ago, Putin called Biden a "candidate" despite clear election results indicating he's the winner. That lack of confidence appears to have permeated his relations with world leaders, who acknowledged Biden as the victor much earlier than Trump.

Brian Kemp, a statement that could potentially create major discord only weeks before two critical US Senate runoff elections in the state. In a call-in interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Trump harshly criticized both Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger for utilizing Dominion voting machines in the state. Trump, still smarting from President-elect Joe Biden winning Georgia in the November election, has repeatedly blamed the state's usage of Dominion Voting Systems machines for his defeat. Kemp, formerly Georgia's Secretary of State, narrowly defeated former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams in the 2018 gubernatorial election. Under Georgia state law, a Senate candidate must receive at least 50% of the vote to win an election.
