CFA Institute members were asked whether the U.S. presidential race would have an impact on the economy.
The votes have been tallied and the answer is yes, by a near landslide—80% believe the election will impact the U.S. economy. But whether for better or worse is still anybody’s guess.
And 40% believe the election will not help global economic recovery. Compared to other jobs, chief-level executives (72%) are most likely to believe it would have an impact.
Meanwhile, 50% say it all depends on who wins the election. Only 20% think there will be an impact regardless of a republican or democratic win.
