President Obama will be meeting with top business executives on Wednesday to talk about resolving the “fiscal cliff.”
However, Politico’s Ben White points out that Wall Street wasn’t invited.
The list for Wednesday’s CEO meeting with President Barack Obama on the fiscal cliff does not include a single banker and only one person — Kenneth Chenault of American Express — from the financial services industry. Chenault is a fixture at these White House meetings, which have amounted to little more than photo ops in the past.
White also points out that it seems odd to not have bank execs who can talk about the implications the fiscal cliff would have on the financial markets. However, a White House source tells White that this will not be the only meeting with executives.
Here’s the list of who will be attending:
- Mark Bertolini, President, Chairman and CEO, Aetna
- Ursula Burns, Chairman and CEO, Xerox
- Kenneth I. Chenault, Chairman and CEO, American Express Company
- David Cote, Chairman and CEO, Honeywell
- Mike Duke, President and CEO, Walmart
- Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO, General Electric
- Andrew Liveris, President, Chairman and CEO, Dow
- Robert McDonald, President and CEO, Proctor & Gamble
- Alan Mulally, President and CEO, Ford
- Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo.
- Ginni Rometty, President, Chairman and CEO, IBM
- John Watson, Chairman and CEO, Chevron
