    Yesterday, I discussed whether corporate fixed investment would indeed make a resurgence, as many analysts and economists are hopeful of, in 2014.  In that article, I discussed the link between personal consumption expenditures and business capital investment.  What is becoming clear is that, on an annualized basis, personal consumption is weakening which historically doesn’t bode well for fixed investment.  Yet, there are many hopes that the consumer will begin to ratchet up spending in the coming year which will drive economic growth above 3%.
