Neera Tanden says growing up with a single mother for a time relying on food stands and government housing assistances informs her policy views. Budgets are not extraction. They're reflection of our values. They touch alive in profound ways. And sometimes, they make all the differences.

I just think she's... she's wouldn't be a *** Allies say qualification can overcome the opposition. But Tanden's confirmation may well depend on whether Republicans keep control of the senate.

In a report measures how much kids have been learning during the pandemic, the study says many has not been as bad as someone fears. But NPR's Cory Turner says, there's also a warning. The report is from a non-profit NWEA, the group behind the MAP Growth test. As a low stage test that millions of kids take a few times every year in subjects like reading and math, reserchers found in reading kids are performing similarily to other children before the pandemic. In math, about 5-10% behind. That's a moderate slow down in learning. Reserchers caution though many vulnerable kids didn't take the test this fall. Kids were more likely to be black and brown, from high-poverty school and have lower perfermance in the first place. And that's why NWEA warn we have to be very cautious before making too much of these promising reports. Cory Turner, NPR news.


More records are hot on Wall Street today, a day after closing up the strongest monthly-gain for stocks since April and double-digit-gain for the broader market, stocks continue to move higher. The Dow's up 185 points. The NASDAQ grows 156 points. This is NPR.


Oil giant Exxon has finally acknowledged that some of its investments are not going to pay off as planned. Lots of oil companies has done with that this year but Exxon has been a holdout insisting its plans were unaffected by the coronavirus pandemic. NPR's Camila Domonoske has more. Oil companies predict future oil prices and plan investments accordingly. When prices drop unexpectedly, that means some of those plans won't be profitable any more. That's below to companies' future earnings, and announcing it is called a write-down. The pandemic sent oil and gas prices plunging so a lot of oid and gas companies announced write-downs. That's normal after a price-drop. But Exxon is famous for avoiding write-downs, executive of maintaining prices would recover, so they didn't need to change their plans. Now Exxon is annoucing its biggest right down ever - up to 20 billion dollars. But instead of acknowledging any sorts of shifting thinking, Exxon says it is just removing less-strategic assets from its plans. Camila Domonoske, NPR news.


Consumer Advocate Group say they're not happy with the proposal by the outgoing Trump administration. They say would weaken protection for people when they buy airline tickets. The Transportation Department's making a final proposal for defining unfair and deceptive practices by airlines. Among other things, it would declare airline ticket prices advertised unfair only because its substantial injury is not offset by some other benefits. Consumer Group contempted that is too high to bar.


Crude oil futures prices took their biggest drop in 2 weeks as OPEC appears unable to reach the decision on production. Oil's down 79 cents a barrel, at $44.55 a barrel in New York.

1.  President-elect Joe Biden introduced his economic team today including former Fed Chair Janet Yellen who he plans to nominate as Treasure Secretary, as NPR's XXX reports, Biden's pick for Budget Director has drawn* pushback* from both the lefts and the rights.
  Neera Tanden says growing up with a single mother for a time relying on food stands/stamps* and government housing assistances informs her policy views.
  "Budgets are not extractions/abstractions*预算不是抽象的. They're a reflection of our values. They touch our* lives in profound ways. And sometimes, they make all the differences."
   As the head of a prominent liberal think tank, Tanden has tangled with both Bernie Sanders' supporters and Republicans. Texas Senator Republican John Cornyn says that is a problem.
  "I just think she's... she's going to be*..."
   Allies say her qualifications can overcome the opposition. But Tanden's confirmation may well depend on whether Republicans keep control the Senate.
