Government not doing enough for economy says CEOs

The CEO Institute’s latest survey of 226 chief executives has found that 75 percent of the nation’s CEOs feel that the Rudd Government is not doing enough to support businesses.

The Institute’s chairman, Ken Gunn believes that many CEOs are critical of the Rudd Government’s $42 billion stimulus package, and want to see fewer cash handouts, with an increased focus on expenditure on infrastructure.
