It dropped to 118.9 points, but still remains significantly above its long-term average.

Results of the Ifo World Economic Survey (WES) of 4th quarter 2015 (12 November 2015)
Nov 12, 2015: The Ifo Index for the world economy clouded over. After reaching 95.9 last quarter, the indicator is now clearly below its long-term average of 96.1 points at 89.6 points. Assessments of the current economic situation deteriorated only marginally, but expectations are far less positive than last quarter. The most urgent economic problems, according to experts, are insufficient demand and a lack of confidence in government policies. The world economy is seeing only moderate growth. Details
