Why Shortages Are Permanent: Global Supply Shortages Make Fantastic Financial Sense...CORPORATE GREED!
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]



The era of abundance was only a short-lived artifact of the initial boost phase of globalization and financialization.


Global corporations didn't go to all the effort to establish quasi-monopolies and cartels for our convenience--they did it to ensure reliably large profits from control and scarcity. Not all scarcities are artificial, i.e. the result of cartels limiting supply to keep prices high; many scarcities are real, and many of these scarcities can be traced back to the stripping out of redundancy / multiple suppliers of industrial essentials to streamline efficiency and eliminate competition.

Recall that competition and abundance are anathema to profits. Wide open competition and structural abundance are the least conducive setting for generating reliably ample profits, while quasi-monopolies and cartels that control scarce supplies are the ideal profit-generating machines.

The incentives to expand the number of suppliers, i.e. increase competition, are effectively zero. America's corporations spent $11 trillion buying back their own stocks over the past decade; that's equal to the combined GDP of Japan, Germany and Italy. If adding new suppliers to the global supply chain were profitable, some of that $11 trillion would have exploited those vast profits.

The financial reality is attempting to compete with an established cartel that has captured regulatory and political mechanisms is a foolhardy waste of capital. If firing up a new supplier of essential solvents, etc. was so captivatingly profitable, the why wouldn't Google and Apple take a slice of their billions in cash and go make some easy money?

The barriers to entry are high and the markets are limited. A great many specialty lubricants, solvents, alloys, wires, etc. are essential to the manufacture of all the consumer and industrial products that are sourced globally, but the markets are narrow: manufacturers need X amount of a specialty solvent, not 10X.

Back in the good old days before globalization and financialization conquered the world, corporations lined up three reliable suppliers for every critical component, as this redundancy alleviated supply chain chokeholds. But to keep those three suppliers in business, you need to spread the order book among all three. Nobody will keep a facility open if it's only used occasionally when the primary supplier runs into a spot of bother.

how can people think they won’t be accountable in some way for doing bad things? there are laws covering everything but some people think that because their intentions are hidden away in their minds they are somehow exempt

If they don't go to food being their passengers, it might be a deadly winter for some people. Food control is how you kill a city under siege. More often than not, a country the IMF is interested in grows their own food. By the end of the program all their food is imported as that is a great item to use for population control.

Without fertilizers, modern fields would be hard pressed to grow anything. If Kansas can still grow poppies, that should be the crop of choice just for North America as far as 'being calm though there is disaster all around'.
Today all free places should allows 'gardens crops' such as spuds to be planted anywhere. Roof-top herb gardens (or vertical walls)should be normal rather than 'missing'.
