quote:

Unfortunately, the velocity of this money is incredibly low. Companies are not investing it at rates that are historically normal. I wonder why that is.


Because consumers do can not buy their products because their wages are so low because those companies have moved all of the jobs that would pay a living wage overseas under the guise of tax avoidance but in reality merely to maximize profit in the short term without any regard for consequences over the long term. They have done this with the reassurance that the US Military will make certain they are capable of doing business overseas with little or no trouble out of the local governments. The Military will use the sons and daughters of those very displaced workers to make certain that Apple and others have a market for their products all over the world and those displaced workers will be glad to have their offspring stand as cannon fodder for the world as long as they do not have to face the specter of universal health care and homosexuals getting married. This is why companies aren't investing because there is nothing left to invest in...opportunities have run out. The pyramid scheme has run its course and the law has just busted down the door and started asking questions and carting the perps off to jail.

no. capital spending only affect profits marginally via depreciation.

this is only a secondary reason for capital spending. in fact, it's just a policy aimed to enhance incentives & result in more of it.

there's a more significant, long-term, profit-driven motive for capital spending, and in its absence you shouldn't be surprised when the investments don't happen.

hint in case the OP's still here: it certainly ain't arbitrarily growing wages, or any other cost of production.
