Global economic conditions survey report: Q3, 2009

The third ACCA Global Economic Conditions Survey was carried out between 30 July and 19 August 2009 and attracted 1,200 responses from ACCA members in 92 jurisdictions around the world. In acknowledgment of the heated debate regarding the strength of the economic recovery, this latest survey examined in more detail the risk factors affecting the global economic outlook, focusing on government spending and business investment. The results are at once encouraging and sobering.
