Survey: CEOs Are Prepping for U.S. Recession

According to a survey released Thursday by The Conference Board, nearly all CEOs are readying for the U.S. economy to fall into a recession. 

The survey, The Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence, found that 98 percent of CEOs were preparing for a U.S. recession over the next year. Notably, that figure is five percentage points higher than in the Conference’s third-quarter survey. 

Of those who anticipated a recession, 85 percent said they’re prepping for a “brief and shallow” one with “limited global spillover,” according to The Conference Board. About 13 percent said they are braced for a “deep” U.S. recession “with material global spillover.”
