Keeping Cash At Home

This motif has been retired and will no longer receive updates. With many world economies still on shaky ground, some American companies are focusing their spending on what they know best: their US-based operations. In fact, according to the Progressive Policy Institute[1], the 25 biggest US corporate spenders poured a combined $136 billion into new domestic plants, technology and equipment in 2011 alone. For these companies, second-quarter US GDP growth of 1.7% could be more attractive than slower growth rates around the world. On top of that, a relatively fast-growing population of working-age citizens[2] could help contribute to future economic growth in the US. That means companies investing here now could be the first to reap the benefits, and could continue to find America beautiful. See more
