ABSTRACT
The article presents news related to the economic growth of business enterprises. It states that higher capacity-utilization figures can signal the possibility of plant and equipment shortages among manufacturers, mining companies and utilities, which can lead to higher capital spending. Economists see continued strong growth in the housing market, which has been one of the foundations of U.S. economic growth over the past two years. Inventories have significant implications for future manufacturing and IT spending. If levels are rising faster than expected, businesses often will cut back on production and new orders for goods. Likewise, capital investments may be postponed.
