Global economic conditions survey report: Q3, 2013

This is the eighth survey jointly carried out by IMA and ACCA and the nineteenth since the series began in early 2009. Fieldwork for the Q3, 2013 GECS was carried out between 15 August and 4 September 2013, and drew 2,021 responses from ACCA and IMA members around the world, including 154 from CFOs. Readers should note that fieldwork was concluded before the US government shutdown of October 2013 could become a significant concern.
