Today the president met with 20 members of American industry to make peace and to find a way to work together to promote investment and jobs. Yes the 20 representatives invited were mostly friendly to the administration, and those most hostile were not invited. However those who attended were quite upbeat about the meeting and this could be really good news for the economy.The big difference from previous meetings is that this time " the president listened , did not lecture , and really seemed engaged."
If the president is sincere,and I hope he is, this could be a new beginning of government and private business working together to point us in the right direction. After all, government does not create jobs, private business does, and it needs the government to create an environment conducive to creating jobs. Maybe just maybe this will happen and we will all benefit.
