It's too early to tell for sure but it'd be my guess that you are at least significantly correct.

No, tech and equipment are tax deductible(as are wages) so a lower tax rate actually disincentives tax deductible actions in favor of ones that aren't. The tax cuts made stock buy backs a better use of profits compared to investments which is why that increased.

Productivity gains prove that fact since it's a shorthand stat for increased corporate profits. An increase in productivity means output is growing faster than costs and the largest cost is the cost of labor(in a modern service/consumer economy).
