United States: Brainard, number 2 of the Fed, candidate for the post of chief economic adviser to the White House, according to the press

(Reuters) – U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) Vice Chairman Lael Brainard is a serious contender for the post of top White House economic adviser, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing three people familiar with the matter.

Lael Brainard, a 61-year-old Democrat, was named number two in the US central bank in November 2021, where she is more of a “dove” on the monetary policy committee.

Talks are underway to find a successor to Brian Deese, US President Joe Biden’s top economic adviser, who is expected to step down soon, according to the Washington Post.

Other nominees include Wally Adeyemo, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Gene Sperling, who headed the White House National Economic Council (NEC) under the presidencies of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Bharat Ramamurti, Deputy Director of the NEC and Gina Raimondo, Secretary of State for Commerce, again according to the Washington Post.
