Obama's Jobs Summit Invitees

What, no Sahalis? President Obama has invited a host of big names such as Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Disney chief Bob Iger to his jobs summit this Thursday, the day before the government's November jobs report is released. The summit, aimed at solving the labor crisis that has spiked unemployment and cost the country 7.3 million jobs since the beginning of 2008, will have about 130 participants, including the CEOs of AT&T, Comcast, Boeing, and FedEx, according to a partial guest list. In addition to captains of industry, eggheads such as Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and former Fed vice Chairman Alan Blinter will attend.
