The US NeverEnding Recession: Private Domestic Investment Continues Near Historic Lows

Like the movie “The NeverEnding Story,” the US seems mired in a NeverEnding recession.

Look at real net domestic investment (annual) as a percentage of GDP. As of 2015, it has risen to … the lowest level since the recessions of 1974, 1981 and 1990.

Looking a quarterly nominal net private domestic investment as a percentage of nominal GDP, we find that it has fallen to levels that we have seen in previous recessions.

So despite the talking heads raving about the US economic recovery, apparently US firms are not investing in America. A very troubling sign. A NeverEnding Recession.
