Laurence Fink, CEO of BlackRock, said that if Congress fails to avert the upcoming "fiscal cliff," it will become the No. 1 issue for the next president. Fink noted that President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney failed to address the issue in their debates. "The most important issue affecting the next president will be how they deal with the fiscal cliff, and not one question from one of the [debate] interviewers ... was 'How are you going to deal with that,?' " Fink said.
