拜登选择珍妮特·耶伦为财政部长

总统当选人拜登会选择耶伦, 美联储前主席, 作为他的财政部长, 根据知情人士的消息.

耶伦, who will be the first woman to hold the job should she be confirmed by the Senate, will be tasked to lead Biden’s economic response to the coronavirus pandemic, which has wreaked havoc on the economy and led millions of Americans to lose their jobs. She will also be asked to make good on the former vice president’s campaign promise to narrow the economic divide between rich and poor in the United States.
耶伦, after a long career in academia and different federal reserve roles, was nominated by President Barack Obama to become chair of the Federal Reservethe first woman to hold the positionin a role she filled from 2014 至 2018. President Donald Trump opted not to renominate Yellen during his first year in office, instead nominating Jerome Powell to take the top job.
Biden had said that his pick to be Treasury secretary would attract broad support from different corners of the Democratic Party.
    You’ll soon hear my choice for Treasury, either just before or just after Thanksgiving,” Biden told reporters in November. “It’s someone who will be accepted by all elements of the Democratic Party, from the progressive to the moderate coalitions.
      And Yellen does appear to have that broad appeal. The historic nature of her nomination could help with any skeptical Democrats. And Republicans, who may control the Senate in January, have previously backed Yellen, including in her nomination to Fed Chair. Yellen’s confirmation would be in line with Biden’s pledge to build a diverse Cabinet.
      这是一个突破性的故事,将进行更新.
