Re: Seriously though, what's with the shortages that have been lasting for years now?
They shut down major portions in the supply chain world wide for at least 3 to 4 months early in the hysteria. Manufacturers dont store the raw materials as it requires so much extra expense with warehousing.

The raw materials producers shut down and to start up some operations can take months especially some took the time to schedule maintenance while down as well as upgrades. This unnecessary interruption disrupted everything from both manufacturing and retail.

Now with panic demand, its hard for them to keep up. No doubt that manufacturers are taking advantage and raising prices as resource price went up as unions demanding longer timeouts, and some not returning to work due to the fearmongering over the virus.

China just today closed the largest port there so likely to really get worse. I will say it seems to largely depend where you are regionally as here Louisiana, my experience has not been that bad as far as shortages.

Maybe not the usual brand on the shelves but others available and go back the next day and those usual brands are back but in the numbers accustomed too. Its beginning to get worse however as the local Walmarts are closing for a week for "cleaning" which is unprecedented and stocking they say.

Lots of stores closing early and posting temp hours. Employment problems as people claiming sickness or just opting to stay home. I do believe the fear the Administration has generated coupled with the early forced closures have caused the problems so agree its mostly a manufactured problem.

Just bought a new vehicle in November, and literally no cars on the lots. Never seen that before. The Honda dealer had one which we liked. Took it out for test drive and the salesman got a call while we were out that the car had sold.

They another one coming that was different by the interior color so had to wait about a week before it arrived but got it the week after Thanksgiving, and lucky as they said no more scheduled to come for another 4 months due to chip shortage. But it is what it is, and Biden seems happy to just throw his hands up

Publix contracts with private chicken growers normally to do all their private-label fresh meat. That's why it's so much higher quality, they get to say what conditions they live in and what the feed is.

If they are sourcing from Koch, that means they are desperate and can't meet their own needs. Koch is the worst garbage quality chicken out of all the main suppliers.

This is overregulation!! You can't actually make a whole product from start to finish without Chinese fingers touching it anymore. If we start now maybe our children's children will have an easy life but we fucked up so easy times stops now for us. Better start learning to make everything bootleg and get rid of regs for a while at least. It's gonna sting to say the least.

China will reopen the supply chain when the Neocons stop with the campaign of sanctions and "maximum pressure". Trump and Biden are both to blame in this regard because both are/were subordinate to the Neocons who control the Deep State.

Remember all those Chinese people dropping dead in the streets and subways in China when "the Pandemic" first broke out? It was those images that led to Western hysteria and the self-destructive lockdowns. But once "the Pandemic" got underway, there were no longer Chinese people (or people in any other country) dropping dead in the streets. Right then and there I knew it was a Hoax.

So, what was the purpose? To answer that you have to recall what the Chinese-American relationship was the day before the Hoax. The day before "the Pandemic" started in Wuhan, the Neocon-run Deep State (which Trump made the mistake of giving a free hand) was increasing the "maximum pressure" campaign of sanctions and tariffs on China. Trump took the Establishment foreign policy advice of "maximum pressure" without thinking critically about the consequences in the long term. This is a hallmark of Deep State foreign policy: thinking only in terms of short term gain without thinking about the long term consequences. It's the drug addict mentality.

The consequence came when China decided to reciprocate the damage done to their economy by creating a Hoax that they knew would lead to mass Western hysteria and eventual economic collapse. It worked: the hysteria led to tyrannical lockdowns and America's economy collapsed. A secondary benefit of the Hoax was that Trump's enemies in the Deep State and in the Democrat Party were able to manipulate the Hoax for domestic political purposes in the form of ushering the fraudulent mail-in ballots and media manipulation that led to the overthrow of Trump and the stealing of an election.

And now we see that Biden's foreign policy is being run by the same unelected, Neocon Deep State goons that influenced Trump's foreign policy. They will and have doubled-down with China (and Russia) and so the economic war will continue on its present course. The only solution to this nightmare will come when men of power in the Military and Intelligence community decide to forcefully remove the influence of the Neocons and take this country back the hard way, given that our Electoral Process is now FUBAR.

It isn't rocket science. I work for a large financial company, mortgage specific, and it's my job to analyze the entire market for my company. Inflation will continue to rise due to the supply chain (SC). Inflation cause is 2 fold. One, printing money out of thin air, and lack of supply is #2.
On monetary policy, printing money causing inflation isn't monetary theory, it's fact. It's a simple equation based on proven data. This is contradictory to the feds 'news snippits', bc they assume the avg US citizen is stupid. That assumption is right bc most people could give 2 shits if they are getting free money. The fed btw isn't tappering easy money btw. Until the excess money supply is sucked out if the system it will best case level off, worse case continue. I'm betting worse case bc of how M2 money supply works in practice. Banks not needing to hold a percentage reserve for loans produced causes a multiplier of the money in circulation
On SC, since the beginning of the pandemic supply chain has been completely disrupted but for some reason the media and government is just now supposedly addressing. This is 1 year to late but regardless it can't be fixed overnight. The amount of ALL, ALL, ALL, raw materials produced by China is staggering. The US can't simply start making product overnight in-house, nor will big corps want to do it. Why would you with rising wages? It makes zero sense unless you penalize the corps. Trump tried, albeit it was more as window dressing, but it was something. Final thought on supply chain, until china stops locking down the supply chain will get worse. No matter what the US does to try and fix the problem, our solution will take years to implement.

Take away, the dems are so fucking stupid they will refuse to look into or study the above. For the few dems that get it they won't care bc they believe in power only, not the citizens best interest. Neo-cons fall into the latter. The only solution that is the quickest is to stop all subsidies to private corps, install tariffs across the board, and hunker down for a collapse. The house of cards is to massive to dismantle without a quick controlled implosion. The key will be allowing blackrock and vanguard to collapse. People will not want to hear that since their entire retirement will be gone but it's the quickest, most just, and equal to do. This solution has complete disregard of status or power.
