Results of the latest quarterly Duke University/CFO magazine Global
Business Outlook Survey are published in the May 1 CFO Magazine. Weakening consumer demand is the number one cause of concern (for the second quarter in a row) but issues related to credit markets, the housing market bust, and fuel/commodity costs are all in the top 10.
In addition, CFOs
are anxious about their customers' creditworthiness and the financial
health of their suppliers. Finance executives are concerned about their
own companies' access to capital as well.
