CPA Outlook Index Falls to 59 in Q4 2012 

    Published January 31, 2013

    Business executives hold their dimmest view of prospects for the U.S. economy since the waning days of 2011, according to the fourth quarter AICPA Economic Outlook Survey.

    The CPA Outlook Index--a comprehensive gauge of executive sentiment within the survey--fell four points to 59 for the quarter. The index had matched a post-recession high of 69 at the start of this year, but has since sagged.
