Political and government stability top of mind for US CEOs

October 24, 2022 | Chart

The Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence™ in collaboration with The Business Council declined for the sixth consecutive quarter in Q4 2022 and hit a low not seen since the Great Recession. CEOs’ views of current and future economic conditions remain pessimistic as they prepare for near-inevitable US and EU recessions. 

The Q4 survey asked CEOs to describe which global conditions would be the biggest challenge to their business by the end of 2022. Over 33% reported concerns about political and government instability. The next biggest worries were energy access and energy security, the Russian/Ukraine conflict, and a slowing Chinese economy.
