COMPAS Poll/Survey

The CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS business panel are moderately positive in their forecasts for the economy. Key findings are that panelists

  • Are more positive about the economy today than they have been in a year (table 2a);
  • Believe that the economy will remain unchanged or improve in the next six months (only 8% forecast a worsening)(table 2b);
  • Anticipate that a global turnaround will take 23 months (table 2c);
  • Assign stable, strong performance scores to the Bank of Canada and the Harper government while assigning poor and declining scores for the performances of President Obama, the U.S. Federal Reserve, and the U.S. Congress (both outgoing and incoming) (table 2d); and
  • Predict that the loonie and U.S. dollar will be at par a year from now.

These are the key findings from this past week’s Internet survey of CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. The weekly business survey is undertaken for Canadian Business magazine.
