Axios AM Deep Dive: ? Beginning the Biden economy

Mike Allen <mike@axios.com> Sat. Feb 6, 2021

Axios AM Deep Dive   By Mike Allen ·Feb 06, 2021

Good afternoon. After President Biden’s first two weeks, here’s a Deep Dive — led by Axios business managing editor Aja Whitaker-Moore — on his team, his plans and the outlook for this new era of Democratic control.

1 big thing: A lucky president

Photo illustration: Eniola Odetunde/Axios. Photo: Kyle Rivas/Stringer via Getty Images

Joe Biden assumed office with more economic upside than any other president in recent history, writes Axios Business Editor Dan Primack.

Between the lines: Presidencies are creatures of circumstance. For Biden, it’s a smoldering economy atop a solid foundation, with a rebuild plan whose primary materials (vaccines and stimulus) are in unusually high supply. If economic arrows turn red, it likely means Biden botched the blueprint.

  • Donald Trumpinherited a longstanding recovery, which meant he could help accelerate growth but had no recession to reverse.
  • Barack Obama was faced with a financial crisis born of deep, systemic design flaws. There was no vaccine to cure what ailed America’s economy.
  • George W. Bushcampaigned in the last days of the dotcom bubble, which already had begun bursting when he entered the White House.
  • Bill Clinton inherited a recession, but only a relatively mild one.

A big difference between 2020 and past recessions is that 2020 was caused by an external event — the economy was the victim, not the culprit.

  • The Trump economy certainly didn’t work for everyone, but many of its macro strengths could remain beneath the ash, including pre-pandemic wage growth and decreases in poverty rates.
  • Biden can dig a lot of them up, just by succeeding on vaccine distribution. He then can leverage Democratic control of Congress — and America’s desensitization to big numbers — to throw money at short-term economic problems.

Between the lines: Tailwinds don’t necessarily result in a smooth flight. Biden’s biggest risk could be the fact that American business, investors and most voters expect success. Anything short of the Roaring 20s (Part II) would bring disappointment.

The bottom line: Never before has a bad economy looked so good for a presidential legacy.

  1. State of economic affairs

Data: Bureau of Economic AnalysisBureau of Labor StatisticsCensus BureauYahoo Finance. Chart: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios

  1. Priced for perfection

Photo illustration: Eniola Odetunde/Axios. Photo: Getty Images

It would be hard for things to get much worse than 2020. But Wall Street fund managers may be pricing in too much optimism, Axios Markets author Dion Rabouin reports.

  • Why it matters:Projections from economists and government offices — for falling unemployment, rising GDP and a booming stock market — are setting Biden up for success. But high hopes dashed could lead to blowback.

What’s happening: The Congressional Budget Office expects U.S. growth to return to its pre-COVID level midway through this year, and for the unemployment rate to reach 6% by year’s end.

  • Goldman Sachs economists are even predicting that U.S. GDP growth in the third quarter will reach 10% — a milestone without modern precedent, save for the 33% growth in Q3 2020 that followed the 35% contraction in Q2.

That’s got asset managers expecting big returns from the stock market this year and businesses banking on rising sales and profits.

  • But even before the recent run-up in equities prices, the stock market was “priced for perfection,” John Lynch, CIO of Comerica Wealth Management tells Axios.

Go deeper.

It’s time to pass the Raise the Wage Act

An increase to $15 would help 32 million U.S. workers. It’s the minimum Amazon pays its U.S. employees. Amazon’s Jay Carney shares results firsthand, including:

  • Better employee morale and retention.
  • A surge in job applicants.

A ripple effect for local businesses and economies.

  1. 45 vs. 46 on the stock market

“Finished off the year with the highest Stock Market in history. Setting records with your 401k’s, just like I said you would. Congratulations to all!”

— Trump’s final tweet about the stock market before his account was suspended by Twitter.

“Just in the last three years, during this crisis, the billionaires in this country made, according to The Wall Street Journal, $700 billion more. $700 billion more. Because that’s his only measure. What happens to the ordinary people out there? What happens to them?”

— Biden at the last presidential debate, Oct. 22.

  1. Economic sphere of influence

Graphic: Danielle Alberti, Sarah Grillo/Axios

Here are some administration players who have Biden’s ear on the economy, from Axios’ Courtenay Brown:

  • Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was Fed chair under Obama.
  • Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council, was an executive at BlackRock who headed up sustainable investing and an NEC deputy director in the Obama administration.
  • Susan Rice,domestic policy adviser, will oversee major portions of Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan.
  • Jared Bernstein, a longtime economic adviser to Biden, is a member of the Council of Economic Advisers.

What ties them together: “They clearly have as one of their core values how policy will affect racial equity in a way that I think is new,” Heidi Shierholz, a labor economist at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, told Axios.

Congressional Democrats, thanks to a (slim) Senate majority, are taking the helm of committees that will shape the business world.

  • Elizabeth Warrenwill join the Finance Committee, which oversees tax legislation — a cornerstone of Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan.
  • That committee’s new chair,Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, told CNBC this week he’ll prioritize tax reform.
  • Others include:The new chair of the Budget Committee, Sen. Bernie Sanders, plus Sen. Sherrod Brown, the new Banking Committee chair.

What to watch: The team’s first big test is weeks away, when unemployment benefits for millions of Americans will expire without additional action.

Go deeper.

  1. Reimagined policy toolbox

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

The Biden administration is reinventing an economic toolbox to address a crisis unlike anything the world has seen in a century, Axios’ Kia Kokalitcheva and Felix Salmon write.

Reality check: Whole sectors of the economy are intentionally paralyzed to avoid more catastrophic spread of the virus. Meanwhile, many white-collar telecommuters are doing better than ever.

  • Biden’s economic planstarts with the current $1.9 trillion rescue package. Once that’s passed, he intends to turn to large-scale infrastructure investments that are aimed at creating American jobs and reinventing the post-crisis economy for a zero-carbon world.

A new New Deal: Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan, which includes medium- and long-term efforts to upgrade U.S. infrastructure with an eye on curbing climate change, could prove an effective way to boost economic recovery.

  • Large-scale projects can create a lot of jobs, and re-skilling and education programs may help the labor force longer term. And that could have effects on U.S. productivity.

What we’re watching: Tax increases could help some deficit hawks in Congress feel more at ease with massive spending. But Biden hasn’t focused on that yet.

Go deeper.

A MESSAGE FROM AMAZON

Amazon: Raise the minimum wage to boost the economy

Auhzha Wright at her home on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020 in Harvey, Ill. Photographer: Taylor GlascockAuhzha Wright at her salon on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020 in Chicago, Ill. Photographer: Taylor Glascock

With new support from the White House and commitment in Congress, the Raise the Wage Act has a chance of becoming law.

Amazon believes that U.S. workers, small businesses that will benefit from increased spending, and our economic recovery can’t wait.

The remains of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick were transported in an urn to the building he helped defend during the Jan. 6 D.C. insurrection. A ceremony was held as he lay in honor on Wednesday.

Why it matters: Lying in honor is a final tribute reserved only for private citizens who’ve provided distinguished service to the U.S. President Biden and first lady Jill Biden joined congressional leaders, police and others in paying tribute to Sicknick at the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday night.

The latest: Congressional leaders delivered remarks at a ceremony on Wednesday.

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said to Sicknick’s family: “We will never forget his sacrifice … We will never forget. With your permission, may we be worthy to carry Brian in our hearts.”
  • Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) called Sicknick “a peacekeeper, not only in duty, but in spirit.” He added: Talk to his colleagues and they will tell you that Brian was a kind and humble man, with profound inner strength, the quiet rock of his unit.”

The remains of officer Sicknick arrive at the U.S. Capitol. His remains will lie in honor through Wednesday, and then be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.                       Photo: Jim Lo Scalzo/EPA/Bloomberg via Getty Images

Lindsey Graham Stonewalls Merrick Garland’s Confirmation Hearing, & Upcoming Team Justice Projects

Feb 2, 2021  Glenn Kirschner

In an appalling bit of Republican obstruction, Lindsey Graham (who at the moment remains the leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee) is refusing to set a date for the confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland, President Biden’s nominee for Attorney General. Graham’s action is transparently in retaliation for the impeachment of Donald Trump. Indeed, Graham himself connects the two in a statement he released, saying, in part, “government requires trade-offs.” What can We The People do to try to fix what politicians have broken in our government and our country? This video discusses two of the Team Justice projects that are designed to encourage and inspire full citizen participation in all aspects of government.

  • In their first impeachment filings, Donald Trump’s lawyers denied that he incited the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol and argued that the Constitution did not permit the Senate to try a former president.
  • House impeachment managers asserted that history supported the Senate’s right to try a former president and said that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the riot.
