Yellen is expected to lead the fight against climate change by tackling growing inequality in the United States. In the Corona situation, he is being tasked with normalizing the economy by removing ordinary citizens from the tax burden imposed by the Trump administration.

He is also expected to bring interest rates in the banking sector to a comfortable level. However, interest rates were raised in 2007 under the leadership of Janet Yellen during her tenure at the Fed.
