consumer goods in short supply
I ventured out to Joanns and to WM these past few days, for the first time since it all began.
I was so surprised to see how barren are the shelves! I have never seen retail like this before!
There was an article in the business media yesterday about the broken supply chains that we have depended on so heavily in these past few decades. This was especially true as our industry was sent to the third world and we came to depend so heavily on cheap and disposable items. Then, we got to depend on these same supply lines for durable goods, too.
Now, it is gettin almost impossible to buy some things.
Clothing and shoes have quit coming as they have and it is all like falling dominoes from the raw materials that have to be gathered, the factories, the shipping and the retail.
Brace yourself for some marked, or severe, shortages of many things. Many will probably not ever come back.
