Chief financial officers are less optimistic than they were three months ago, according to a Duke University survey that asked about the global economy and the respective companies’ own prospects.

An optimism index from the Global Business Outlook survey fell to 52 on a scale from 0 to 100, down from 56 in June and 59 in March. Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and CFO magazine survey 1,500 CFOs around the world quarterly.

Economic policies have consequences.
