Global Economic Recovery Experienced Over the Past Five Years
According to the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, Institute of Management Accountants and the Global Economic conditions survey, the economic recovery strength was at its strongest in the past five years than any other time before. The quarterly survey of GEC which is the biggest standard economic survey of accountants globally gauged the IMA and ACCA’s views financial professionals all over the world.

It was in the last quarter of the year 2013 where the strongest confidence was realized and it came from Ireland where the level of confidence in business went up after the bailout of the country as well as the fiscal adjustment programme and very strong return to capital markets.
Indeed, it is very possible that 204 may be the last year of recovery and a return to the usual economic life will most likely be seen. In most developed markets, recovery is not yet proportional as it depends on easy come monies and also a rush in finance supply in some markets thereby creating credit bubbles that are new.
Additionally, emerging markets are getting buffeted by the flow of funds in the outside funds flow that was catalyzed by the intentions of the Federal Reserve to have its asset programme tapered. Exchange rate and price stability is linked to the confidence of businesses and as such has threatened regional stability. What the professionals in finance are telling us through GEC’s in this year will be crucial in ascertaining business direction.
Business investment has been unresponsive in spite of the government’s and central bank’s best efforts which are currently held till a more deserved future is here.
