Boris Johnson who was chairing the meeting opened by stating that, “Jobs and growth is what we’re going to need after this pandemic”. As many, if not all the G-7 nations suffered record economic setbacks in 2020.

Whilst echoing these sentiments, President Biden also brought China’s influence on the world to the agenda, stating that, “We have to push back against the Chinese government’s abuses and coercion that undercut the foundations of the international economic system”.

Dow Jones rises as Yellen calls for “big” stimulus

The Dow Jones ended a choppy week of trading in the green, boosted by comments from Janet Yellen, calling for a big stimulus package.

Yellen, who has been strongly endorsing the proposed $1.9 trillion package stated that, “We think it’s very important to have a big package [that] addresses the pain this has caused – 15 million Americans behind on their rent, 24 million adults and 12 million children who don’t have enough to eat, small businesses failing”.

In her comments to CNBC, the former chair of the Federal Reserve added that, “I think the price of doing too little is much higher than the price of doing something big. We think that the benefits will far outweigh the costs in the longer run”.

As of writing the Dow Jones was up 0.22% with the S&P 500 down 0.16% and the tech heavy NASDAQ index up slightly by 0.19%.
