U.S. President Barack Obama will meet the CEOs of some of the country's largest banks on Friday and impress on them the need to look beyond their own narrow interests, a White House official said on Tuesday.

President Obama will ... reiterate his belief that getting the economy back on track will require an understanding that each of us must look beyond our own short-term interests to the wider set of obligations we have to each other in order for America to succeed, the official said.
