Accounting firm finds reforms hindering economic growth

Concern over reforms trumped worries that a lack in demand could hurt growth. The survey found that only 63 percent of respondents believed declines in demand remain a chief barrier to an economic rebound.  

The survey was conducted between Jan. 13, 2010 and April 6, 2010, and tapped the opinions of 60 senior executives at large, U.S. multinational manufacturing companies. The accounting firm conducts this survey every quarter.
