Economics: CEOs' confidence level

In the final quarter of 2007, the Conference Board Measure ("CBM") of CEO Confidence showed a decline to 39 points.  This is the lowest measurement since the final quarter of 2000 when the CEO Confidence was registered to be 31 points.  On this scale, a score above 50 reflects a more positive sentiment than a negative one.  Clearly, at 39 points, the economic outlook by CEOs is not great, standing at a seven year low.

Some factors such as the housing market troubles, liquidity crisis associated with the Asset-Backed Commercial Paper, financial markets instability and energy prices have contributed to the decline in CEO Confidence level.
