At one point, business isn’t just about money.
President Barack Obama just assembled corporate heavyweights to advise him on the economy.
It was the president’s latest move to show that he is trying to get the economy rolling and is reaching out to business.
Those who made the honor list included an eclectic bunch: Citigroup Chairman Richard Parsons, American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault, AOL co-founder Steve Case, DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman, Intel CEO Paul Otellini, and Kodak CEO Antonio Perez.
In addition to the corner office set, the advisory panel also includes union leaders: Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, and Joseph Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.
That should make for some interesting roundtable chatter, if that’s how the panel works.
