Unique insights into the global economy

Each quarter, YPO surveys its network of 22,000 CEOs in more than 125 countries, on questions related to current and expected economic environment affecting their businesses. About a third of YPO members are entrepreneurs, another third run family businesses, and the rest are professional (hired) executives.

The YPO Global Pulse gathers members’ perspectives on the overall economic climate as well as changes and expected changes in sales, employee counts and fixed investment. Here you can see their views, read select media coverage about the YPO Global Pulse and more.

Confidence increases in net oil-importing economies largely compensated for the weakened optimism in oil exporters, leaving the YPO Global Pulse Confidence Index only 0.7 point off its October 2014 reading at a still-optimistic 62.5.
