The article highlights the first steps of US President Joe Biden, including emergency measures intended to offset the negative effects of the pandemic on the labor market and employment. A special section is devoted to conceived for the future infrastructure and social plans of the White House under the slogan “Build back better”; in addition to updating the road transport network, the plan provides the restoration and construction of housing, the provision of paid sick leave and child care, financial ensuring of universal preschool education, increasing student grants, expanded health care programs and creating millions of jobs by increasing the tax burden on medium and large businesses and highly paid Americans. A separate section is devoted to factors influencing the spread of freelancing - free and not tied to a location form of employment in the context of the formation of a new economic model. Biden's social and economic policy in general can be described as a change of eras: from Reaganomics, with its perception of the state power system as "part of the problem, not the solution," back to the Keynesian model, the strengthening of the role of state regulation and budget financing. The author maintains that Franklin Delano Roosevelt serves as a role model for the current US president. The question that naturally arises in this connection - whether Biden can align with F.D.Roosevelt - involves an analysis of the balance of power in the US Congress, given the unforeseen obstacles that the White House has faced in trying to get approval of social plans in the Senate even before the midterm elections this year to the US legislature.
