Elizabeth Warren is making an economically focused push on climate Friday as she seeks to regain momentum after briefly challenging for frontrunner status months ago.

Driving the news: The campaign is circulating a new analysis from the progressive think tank Data for Progress, which concludes her proposals would yield roughly 10.6 million jobs over 10 years.

  • Warren yesterday rolled out an endorsement from Rhiana Gunn-Wright, an activist who has become prominent over the last year as a key architect of the Green New Deal.
  • Those moves come roughly a week after Warren unveiled the oceans-focused portions of her wider climate platform.

The big picture: Warren's campaign released a document asserting her various plans would provide $10.7 trillion in combined federal and private investment.

  • It's a mashup of her existing proposals and some fleshed-out details in areas such as transport electrification, finance (via "green victory bonds") and more.

Details: The analysis from Data for Progress, a young outfit with growing cachet on the left, looked at potential jobs in energy, water infrastructure, transportation, and buildings.

  • They see 5.4 million jobs stemming from Warren's proposals for direct federal investment in "new and existing clean industries and implementation of green technologies."
  • But that swells to 10.6 million "due to strategic support for U.S. renewable manufacturing and export-oriented economic policy" — a conclusion that assumes each federal dollar "yields an additional 1.5 in exports and induced private-sector activity."

Biden taps Brian Deese to lead National Economic Council

President-elect Joe Biden announced Thursday that he has selected Brian Deese, a former Obama climate aide and head of sustainable investing at BlackRock, to serve as director of the National Economic Council.

Why it matters: The influential position does not require Senate confirmation, but Deese's time working for BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager and an investor in fossil fuels, has made him a target of criticism from progressives.

The places regulation does not reach

Financial regulation is not exactly simple anywhere in the world. But one country stands out for the sheer amount of complexity and confusion in its regulatory regime — the U.S.

Why it matters: Important companies fall through the cracks, largely unregulated, while others contend with a vast array of regulatory bodies, none of which are remotely predictable.

Dublin-based Ryanair said it would add 75 more planes to an existing order for Boeing's 737 Max airplanes, a giant vote of confidence as Boeing seeks to revive sales of its best-selling plane after a 20-month safety ban following two fatal crashes.

The big picture: Ryanair's big order, on the heels of breakthrough vaccine news, is also a promising sign that the devastated airline industry might recover from the global pandemic sooner than expected.
