NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) – President-elect Barack Obama will hold a press conference Monday to announce key members of his administration's economic team.
Mission No. 1 over the next few weeks for that team will be hammering out the details of what the president-elect described this weekend as a two-year economic recovery plan intended to create 2.5 million jobs.

Estimates for how much might be spent on a multi-year stimulus package range as high as $500 billion to $700 billion.
At the center of the plan are investments in the nation's roads, bridges, schools and alternative-energy infrastructure.
Obama's top economic team member – his Treasury Secretary – will also be charged with overseeing the dispersal of funds from the controversial $700 billion financial rescue package that Congress passed in October.
