The good: CFOs think the economy is on an upswing. The bad: They also believe the Japan disaster will impact the US. The ugly: More of them than before plan to raise prices. The uglier: Even as CEO pay soars, most other employees can't expect the same for their compensation.
That's according to a biannual survey of CFOs conducted by Grant Thornton. It questioned 318 CFOs and senior comptrollers, 59 of whom were from the Northeast.
CFOs around the world are feeling good--good enough to start spending some money.

Are we in a new Internet bubble? And will it burst, like the last one?
