Bloomberg: ‘Stars Have Aligned’ to Boost Capital Spending

Bloomberg notes, according to economists, that the oldest capital stock in decades, more clarity on fiscal policy, improving growth prospects and companies awash in cash mean the stars have aligned to boost spending on commercial structures and equipment.
An economics professor at Stanford University is quoted by Bloomberg as saying, “Conditions are perfect, so business-investment rates should be at the kind of levels we saw in the mid-2000s.
