CEOs Have Gloomy Outlook, but Will Start Hiring
Forty percent of CEOs are “very confident” about their own companies' growth prospects for the next 12 months, compared to 15 percent who are optimistic about the outlook for the global economy.
"CEO confidence is decidedly down as they deal with the aftershocks to the recession. CEOs are disappointed with the course of the global economy and the pace of recovery. The optimism that had been building cautiously since 2008 has begun to recede," said Nally.
