    Hi David, Thank you for your post! Capital Expenditures are not included in an industry's spending pattern. As the spending pattern consists of commodities that are used up every year, thereby purchased every year. In order to model your capital expenditure you will need to create a separate Activity from your other Activities. Then locate the appropriate Industry/Sector that best represents that capital expenditure. The following article will provide you with more information on capital expenditures: http://implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=edit&id=468 When you are modeling the capital expenditure that will be your Direct Impact. However it will then have both a Indirect and Induced impact. Thank you!
