Yellen vows to rebuild US economy

The six-person economic team Biden has tapped - which was revealed on Monday - is a who's who list of veterans who served in previous Democratic administrations and, if confirmed, includes a number of historic firsts.

Perhaps no other name on Biden's proposed economic team has created more blowback from Republicans than Neera Tanden.

Tanden, Biden's choice to run the Office of Management and Budget, scrubbed more than 1,000 tweets from her account since November 1 - including some attacking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen.

The two selections also will make history, as Tanden would be the first woman of color and first South Asian American to lead the OMB, and Rouse would become the first African American woman to lead the Council of Economic Advisers.

Nikki Haley slammed Neera Tanden's nomination as White House budget director as "deeply concerning", saying Tanden has "shown bad judgment in the past".

It is expected that Biden would also appoint Janet L Yellen as Treasury secretary.

She said she would work every day to rebuild the dreams of all Americans.

President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday called on Congress to quickly approve a "robust" aid plan to address the Covid-19 economic crisis, which his pick to lead the US Treasury called a "tragedy" for American families.

The Arkansas Republican said "she might as well step aside or Joe Biden might as well withdraw her and go back to the drawing board", claiming the main problems with her are "her radical liberal ideas". If confirmed, Adeyemo would be the first Black deputy secretary of the Treasury. Bernstein served as chief economist to then-Vice President Biden in the Obama-Biden Administration before joining the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
