Thursday's announcement helps round out the gender balance on Trump's economic team, but it still includes mostly business people. There are no new academic economists or policy experts.
Many of the new additions are donors, including Anthony Scaramucci, a top Republican fundraiser and New York investor; Diane Hendricks, a Republican fundraiser who is active in the Koch political network, which has refused to back Trump's campaign; and Liz Uihlein, who is a major party donor.
One of the members, Judy Shelton, has been an outspoken advocate for the gold standard. Another, former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey, suggested in 2009 that the Affordable Care Act included a provision that would "absolutely require" seniors on Medicare to attend a panel every five years on how to end their lives sooner. The comment is believed to be the launching point for inaccurate claims about "death panels" in the legislation, which President Obama signed into law in 2010.
