    Tip of the iceberg.....

    Mr. Immelt also had harsh words for U.S. President Barack Obama, lamenting what he called a “terrible” national mood and expressing concern that over-regulation in response to the global financial crisis would damp a “tepid” U.S. economic recovery.

    Business did not like the U.S. president, and the president did not like business, he said, making a point of praising Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, for her defence of German industry.

    “People are in a really bad mood [in the U.S.],” the 54-year-old executive told an audience of somewhat surprised Europeans who had seen higher levels of U.S. growth as a beacon of recovery.
