    Your comments on my cash mountains article have been forwarded to me. I don’t think your conclusion is right. Certainly it is what conventional economic wisdom dictates viz companies will not invest when they cannot see a profit. However company profits are the highest they have been for 50 years as a percentage of GDP, and interest rates and hurdle  rates are the lowest for 200 years, so in spite of the bad news out there it beggars belief that companies can’t see a profit opportunity.  My piece was looking for an additional explanation as the conventional wisdom of your conclusion does not provide it. Thanks for your interest and  thought provoking letter. Regards Anthony Hilton

    By coincidence SOYMB had a post on the cash mountain being hoarded by companies. http://socialismoryourmoneyback.blogspot.com/2012/03/telegraph-and-socialist-standard.html
