The economic policies: What Biden and other Democrats have proposed for 401(k) plans, home ownership and building wealth

Analysts have projected that Biden’s proposals will bring back the 11 million jobs and $670 billion in annualized gross domestic product wiped out – and not yet recovered – in the crisis more rapidly than if President Donald Trump had won a second term.

The scale of Biden’s plans now, however, hinges on whether Democrats will narrowly control the Senate or if all legislation must be negotiated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Biden has already convened with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the "urgent need" for more stimulus, according to aides. Biden has not yet spoken with Republican leaders in Congress.

In the near-term, Biden's economic plans are expected to focus heavily on responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Dealing with the coronavirus pandemic is one of the most important battles our administration will face, and I will be informed by science and by experts," Biden said when he announced his coronavirus task force, the first move of his transition process.

As with the rest of his economic proposals, the size of the relief package will depend on which party ends up in control of the Senate.

Lindsey Graham, a key ally of the president, said he has spoken with officials in a number of key swing states about the election and ballot counting/Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger accused Graham Monday of pressuring him to find ways to exclude or invalidate legally cast absentee ballots and reverse Trump’s loss in the state, an accusation the South Carolina Republican called "ridiculous.

Biden economic plan: What Biden means for the economy, your finances and another COVID-19 stimulus package

In the longer-term, Biden is proposing $7.3 trillion in new spending over 10 years, which would go toward upgrading the nation’s roads, bridges and highways; building a clean energy economy; investing in research and development to bolster manufacturing;  providing tuition-free community college; ensuring access to affordable child care and universal preschool, and providing aid for Americans to buy or rent homes.

It is unclear how much, if any, of those proposals Biden could get passed through Congress, even with Democratic control of both chambers.

Outside of legislation, the president still has significant space to maneuver on economic issues. Biden does not need congressional approval, for instance, to require the government and its contractors to buy American products, something he has promised to mandate.

Biden, like Trump before him, will also have significant space to determine U.S. trade policy. The Biden administration will likely have significant sway in determining the country's economic relationship with allies like the United Kingdom and the European Union.

'You’ve got to have trust.' The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era

  'You’ve got to have trust.' The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era President-elect Biden hopes the reputation he has as a deal maker will help him push an agenda in Congress. But skepticism about that outcome is high.“John, are you saying air strikes would not help the people in Srebrenica right now? Is that what you're telling me?” Biden, then a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said as he pressed McCain, the Arizona Republican who died in 2018.

Biden will also continue to grapple trade with China, the most significant — and also the most fraught — economic relationship for the United States.

As with both his predecessors, Biden is also likely to use executive orders to enact his economic vision. Like former President Barack Obama, Biden is likely to issue executive orders promoting clean energy, prohibit human trafficking and raising workplace standards with government contractors.

Biden has also reportedly included a focus on addressing racial economic inequality in his administration and is expected to select economic advisors with expertise in how to redress longstanding economic discrimination.

Biden is also likely to reverse a flurry of Trump-era executive orders on environmental and financial deregulation, immigration, trade and federal spending, amounting to a significant change in the economic policy of the country.
