America’s CEO


I’ve been reading a lot lately about people who are not going to vote or who are going to vote specifically for someone other than the two main nominees for US President. That is where this all comes from…

No Evidence of Impending Double Dip Recession According to Vistage CEO Confidence Index


Taxes and Healthcare Will Weigh Heavily on Future Economic Growth and in Mid-Term Elections

Vistage International, Inc.San Diego, CA – CEO confidence was up slightly in the third quarter, noting a slowing economic growth pace, but no evidence of a double dip recession, according to the Vistage CEO Confidence Index 3rd quarter results. Despite widespread recognition of the recent economic slowdown, CEOs were more confident in their firm’s ability to increase their revenues and profits in the year ahead.

Yet, virtually every CEO (92%) expects rising employee health care costs, and 57% of all CEOs expect those cost increases to be more than 10%. Two-thirds of all CEOs said that without the extension of the Bush tax cuts their businesses would be harmed, and nearly half (46%) reported continued unfavorable credit market conditions. In response to a question about the upcoming elections, 62% of CEOs believe the Republicans will control the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2011.
