Even if the corporate tax breaks floated recently by the Trump administration come through, businesses are leery of spending profits on new equipment.According to Reuters, many U.S. companies emerged from the last recession extremely wary of spending-- unless it was sure the returns would justify it.Economist Susan Helper says, "Nobody builds a new factory unless they need the capacity”-- and tax breaks won’t change that.Companies don't lack resources.
