Obama Meeting With Economic Advisers

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama meets with his top
economic advisers today as the U.S. recession shows signs of
abating.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (GYT'-nur), Federal Reserve
Chairman Ben Bernanke (bur-NANG'-kee) and FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair
are heading to the White House for a morning of talks.
Obama advisers say topics of discussion will include: Efforts to
stimulate the economy as well as stabilize the financial sector;
the rising unemployment rate; opportunities for house refinancing,
and the health of banks, including "stress tests" the
administration is conducting.
Last week's G-20 economic summit in London that the president
attended also is expected to be discussed.
