Gross private domestic investment
Gross private domestic investment is the measure of physical investment used in computing GDP in the measurement of nations' economic activity. This is an important component of GDP because it provides an indicator of the future productive capacity of the economy. It includes replacement purchases plus net additions to capital assets plus investments in inventories. From 2002-2011 it amounted to 14.9% of US GDP, and from 1945-2011 was 15.7% of GDP (BEA, USDC, 2013).  Net investment is gross investment minus depreciation. Of the four categories of GDP (investment, consumptionnet exports, and government spending on goods and services) it is by far the least stable.
