President-elect Obama is getting down to the business of business Friday.

He'll meet with leaders of business, government and academia to get some economic advice on how to improve the struggling economy, the nation's No. 1 concern.

Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden plan to meet with 17 members of their transition economic advisory board. Members include investor Warren Buffett, who will participate by telephone, and former presidential Cabinet officials, executives from Xerox, Time Warner, Google, and the Hyatt hotel company.

Obama also plans to hold his first news conference as president-elect after the meeting.

It'll be Obama's first public appearance since Tuesday's election.
