That’s the percent share of global investors who say President Barack Obama and Republican congressional leaders will reach a short-term agreement to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.
A Bloomberg Global Poll conducted Nov. 27 also found that just 6 percent predict a stalemate that will bring the economy into recession. Seven percent envision an impasse with little consequence. Another 7 percent think the two sides will come to a long-term deal.
David Lynch of Bloomberg News has more on the poll. The fiscal cliff is a combination of $607 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect beginning in January.
