World’s CEOs Say 2013 Will Be ‘Meh’

The majority of CEOs attending the World Economic Forum in Davos this week say they believe 2013 is going to be rather boring.

Only 36 percent of CEOs worldwide are “very confident” of their company’s growth prospects in the next 12 months, PriceWaterhouseCoopers’ 16th Annual Global CEO Survey says. The survey showed confidence levels down from the 40 percent who were “very confident” of growth last year and 48 percent who said so in 2011. 28 percent of CEOs in the survey said the global economy will actually get worse this year, with only 18 percent forecasting better times ahead.
