Janet Yellen prestó juramento el martes como 78va secretaria del Tesoro de Estados Unidos la primera mujer que ocupa el cargo.

Le tomó juramento la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris en una ceremonia en una galería exterior de la Casa Blanca con vista al Departamento del Tesoro. El esposo de Yellen, George Akerloff, premio Nobel de Economía 2001, y el hijo de ambos, Robert, también economista, asistieron a la ceremonia.

Yellen fue confirmada por el Senado el lunes con 84 votos a favor y 15 en contra, todos de senadores republicanos.

El gobierno del presidente Joe Biden ha destacado la necesidad de que se aprueben rápidamente los miembros del gabinete dados los peligros que enfrenta el país en medio de la pandemia global y la caída de la economía.

Yellen ha ocupado otros altos cargos en el sector económico. Fue la primera mujer presidenta de la Reserva Federal, de 2014 a 2018.
