The Congress of Companies arrived in NY this morning

Chief executives of more than 80 big U.S. corporations, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Boeing, joined forces on Thursday to pressure Congress to reduce the federal deficit with tax reform and spending cuts.

Ahead of a gathering at the New York Stock Exchange, the U.S. corporate chiefs said it is urgent and essential to put in place a bipartisan plan to fix America’s debt.

You may already be familiar with large summits which involve corporations directly in world affairs, but this event happening right now in New York is not your usual lobbying or talk on globalization and international trade.. in my opinion, this is even bigger news..

Corporatocracy anyone?
