DAVOS, Switzerland — The confidence of global business leaders about their company’s growth prospects in the next 12 months is down from 2012, heavily influenced by uncertainty over the prospects for the world economy, a survey of 1,330 chief executive officers from 68 countries conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers International found.
The study also revealed that ceo’s plan to continue slashing costs and to increase the focus on their customers.

The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.
