Elizabeth Warren's worst and best economic ideas
She’s running for president, but Elizabeth Warren may already be the nation’s wonk-in-chief.
“I have a plan for that,” Warren famously declares on the campaign trail when voters ask about struggling farmers or unaffordable child care or shoddy military housing. And she really does. Her detailed policy ideas seem to be working: some polls now place the Democratic senator from Massachusetts in second place among 23 Democrats, behind only Joe Biden.
Yahoo Finance tallied 26 discrete policy plans Warren has fleshed out on her website, in speeches and in legislation she’s backing. Half relate to business and economic issues. Warren insists she’s a capitalist, yet she favors aggressive new ways to redistribute wealth, a heavy government role in the economy and other policies relatively close to the “democratic socialism” of Bernie Sanders.
Still, Warren’s ideas are framing much of the policy discussion in the 2020 campaign, to the extent there is any policy discussion this early in the race. So Yahoo Finance is grading a dozen of Elizabeth Warren’s economic policy ideas, from A to F, with emphasis on workability, relevance and likely effectiveness.
