McKinsey Global Survey results (June 2013) show that executives, on average, concerning current and future global conditions, are still more positive than negative. Here are some of the findings:

  • Thirty-seven percent of respondents say current conditions are better now than they were six months ago, down from 45% in March, while a slightly larger share says conditions have stayed the same.”
  • The top 5 risks’ to global economic growth in the next 12 months are identified as geopolitical instability, increased economic volatility, sovereign-debt defaults, low consumer demand, and new asset bubbles.
  • “Across regions, executives in North America are the most positive about current and future conditions at home; they are also much more upbeat than they were three months ago…. The opposite is true in developing markets, where 43 percent say current conditions are worse than six months ago (up from 31 percent in March).”
