Executive Summary & Conclusions:
“Most telling is the respondents’ perception of their own business outlook, which has been in free-fall since the start of the survey thirteen quarters ago. In the first quarter, they reported an improved outlook for their business. While one increase certainly doesn’t constitute a trend it gives an indication that our respondents believe that we may be at the bottom.”
