The majority of accountants and other finance professionals are optimistic
about the health of the global economy in 2007.
Only finance professionals from Italy, Germany and France were pessimistic
about the health of the global economy.
The most optimistic country was Canada, with one in four respondents (28%)
ranking the health of the economy ‘very optimistic’, followed by the USA with
24%, compared to the global average of 15%.
Ian Graves, managing director Continental Europe, Robert Half International
said: ‘It is good to see that so many finance professionals are positive about
the future health of our global economy. It is interesting to note that those
who expressed the highest optimism are from Canada and the USA. Given their
industry background and experience, we consider the opinions of these
individuals a useful barometer to what the future global economy holds.’
