Robert Hamilton's insight:

E&Y report more optimistic view of the near future.  I believe that business just wants to get on with it, and will find a way round the doom and gloom news the press and politicians keep pushing out at us!

Key findings:

• 57% think the global economy is improving, up from 21% in October 2012.

• 46% view credit availability as improving, up from 30% in October 2012.

• 44% of companies are focused on growth, up from 38% in October 2012.

• But only 24% are focused on M&A, down from 28% in October 2012.

• 54% have a greater focus on capital planning, up from 44% in October 2012.

Who was it said "Just do it"? Lets do it!
