Obama Had Unannounced Fiscal Cliff Talk With Finance CEOs

President Barack Obama’s efforts to engage business leaders in negotiations to avoid the year-end fiscal cliff have included unannounced private talks with top financial executives at the White House.

On Nov. 16, the same day Obama met with congressional leaders, he sat down with about a dozen financial services executives in the Roosevelt Room, where they were meeting with senior administration officials including Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner.
