Economic optimism is on the upswing: U.S. CFOs' confidence in the global economy jumped from 46.1 points in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 51.9 points in the first quarter of 2012.
A lingering and deep recession combined with marked advances in technology has forever changed the business landscape. According to recent research from New York City-based Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business, CFOs predict a tough road ahead but believe that things will continue to improve. Many predict that concerns over inflation, oil prices and hiring will subside. Overall, more than half believe that the U.S. is in the midst of a recovery. Here are the results of the Baruch's quarterly CFO Outlook Survey, which polled 349 corporate CFOs across the globe.
