Signs of EU bailout economies beginning process of internal devaluation

Regulations and red tape are the greatest constraint to business growth, according to the Grant Thornton International Business Report, a global survey of 3,000 businesses in 40 countries.

Regulations and red tape was cited by 34% of the businesses, followed by shortage of orders/reduced demand (33%) and the cost of finance (22%).

The survey was conducted by Experian in May and June 2012 as part of the Grant Thornton International Business Report, a quarterly global business survey of public and private businesses, now in its twentieth year.
