When we polled CIOs for this month's Economic Confidence Meter, the war in Iraq had just about ended—and the results show it. CIOs' confidence in the chances for a recovery in the overall economy in the next three months jumped more than half a point, to 5.8 from 5.2 on a scale of 1 to 10, and their confidence in the chances of a recovery in their own industry categories also hit 5.8, while the score they gave their own companies moved up to 6.4. Virtually every industry sector hit recent highs, with consulting/professional services up 1.4 points, to 6.6, computer manufacturing up 0.5 points, to 5.6, and wholesale/retail up 1.0 points, to 6.2.
