Yahoo Finance: Larry Summers on economic recovery: 'I worry about trying to operate in an environment of very, very low interest rates for the long term'

The two economists have served roles under administrations on opposite sides of the aisle, so some of their views differed on how to best position the economy during its road to recovery.

“I’m not pessimistic about a package, but I think it’s going more moderately sized” than under a blue wave– type of scenario, said Hubbard during the virtual meeting held by the Economic Club of New York on Thursday.

Spending by consumers and businesses could increase as people become more confident about the economy, but it could take longer for the labor market to recover because of mismatches in the labor force between the jobs lost and the jobs in higher demand, Richmond Federal Reserve Bank President Thomas Barkin said on Thursday.

Some people who lost jobs at retailers or in restaurants may not see a clear path to figuring out their next role, Barkin said during a virtual discussion organized by the Economic Club of New York.

WASHINGTON EXAMINER: White House worried about Republican opposition to controversial Trump Fed pick

“The White House is really not sure they have the 50 votes in the Senate to confirm her,” Moore told the Washington Examiner. Moore met with Trump and multiple senior White House officials on Wednesday.

Shelton is not expected to get support from any of the 47 senators who are Democrats or independents. Now, there are concerns that she does not have enough support from Republicans to garner the 51 votes necessary for confirmation.

Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the Republican whip, told reporters Tuesday that Shelton doesn't have the votes needed for confirmation. Yet Trump’s National Economic Council director, Larry Kudlow, said Thursday at an event hosted by the Economic Club of New York that Trump remains firmly behind her nomination. Kudlow added that he thinks the White House can get the 50 Senate votes for her confirmation.
