WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top White House economic aide said on Thursday that direct payments from the recently passed coronavirus relief plan would start going out this month through direct deposits, as he touted the package’s promises of helping with poverty, small businesses and job creation.

Still, the aide, Brian Deese, told CNN that inflation “is a risk, like many, that we are going to constantly monitor and keep our eye on”.
