Will the New Tax Law Result in Increased Equipment Demand?

Based on a recent Wall Street Journal article, companies that purchase equipment this year can expense 100% of the acquisition cost. While I am not qualified to provide tax advice (although many of my colleagues are if you need assistance in that area), this seems like a great opportunity for companies that finance equipment, and/or business acquisitions and mergers. The new tax law allows businesses buying equipment to deduct the entire cost of their purchases in the first year.
