Joe Biden will be 78 years old in 12 days, on November 20.
Biden, who confused his granddaughter for his dead son, is also cognitively impaired with some form of senile dementia.
That has led to legitimate speculations as to why the Democrat Party would have a senile elderly man as their presidential candidate, and who really will be the powers in a Biden presidency.
According to the UK Telegraph, “Biden has drawn on a large network of economic advisers, but attempted to keep their involvement a secret and barred them from publicly confirming their roles in the campaign.”
The Washington-based policy research firm Beacon Advisors believes that since Biden chose as his VP Kamala Harris, who is “almost as radical as” Elizabeth Warren, Biden’s choice of other personnel likely will also be radical because “We view it as likely that the Biden administration will look to use these appointments as an opportunity to appease the progressive wing of the Democratic party.”
The following individuals will likely be “President” Biden’s economic advisors:
- Jared Bernstein, a long-time economic adviser who worked for Biden in Obama’s first term. Bernstein has spoken out on issues such as the need for a higher minimum wage and the downsides of globalization. He told the Sunday Telegraph in October: “There is a key role for the government to play in making sure that working people get a fair share of the growing economy, and one of the most important aspects of that role is making sure that workers have the bargaining power they lack.”
- Heather Boushey, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton, and a leading progressive in economics as head of the Washington Centre for Equitable Growth. Boushey last year wrote that the American economy was “getting bigger, but not better” and that a “rising tide can’t lift all boats”.
- Lael Brainard, 58, is the hot favourite to replace Steve Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary, according to James Knightley, chief international economist at ING. Brainard is a Federal Reserve board member and a former Treasury official who served in the White House under Bill Clinton.
- Ben Harris, 43, is a tax and budgeting expert steeped in Washington’s thinktank world who was then-VP Biden’s chief economist from 2014. Harris is the details man, seen as a potential director of the new president’s National Economic Council, who helped shape plans including big tax increases on business. Of the $4 trillion in extra taxes originally pencilled in over the next decade, more than half comes from business, including the unwinding of half of Trump’s corporation tax cut by taking the rate back to 28%.
