US: Biden Hires Economic Team With Focus On Systemic Racism

Reflecting the influence that blacks, particularly black women, are expected to have in an administration that will feature the first female, and first black AND the first Indian vice president, the Biden team has already made a point to fill its transition team with minorities, moreso than any previous administration.

According to Bloomberg, the Biden team has already selected dozens of progressive economists to help with the transition, including Mehrsa Baradaran, whose book “the Color of Money”, is a critical text for contemporary left-wing economists. She’s joined by Lisa Cook, an economist at Michigan State University, on the “landing team” for banking & securities regulators, including selecting potential new members of the Federal Reserve board of governors (for which there is presently one vacancy).
