The CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS business panel anticipate the beginning of a global upswing in 2013 but not before. The main threats to a global recovery are the state of the U.S. economy and the possibility of war involving Iran and, most especially, Europe's economic situation. Prime Minister Harper earns an exceptional high grade for his government's response to the Iranian regimes pronouncements and military threats in the Strait of Hormuz, which threaten the flow of about one-third of the world's petroleum products shipped by sea.

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.
