Supply chain shortages are everywhere. Seemingly affecting all industries to varying extents. We all know what happened in 2020. Therefore we all know the underlying causation.
The effects (supply chain shortages) continue to ripple through the world. Consequently, all sorts of industry are affected by these shortages. Many, hidden from the public eye.
For example, maybe there’s a bicycle manufacturing company. You want to buy one of their particular bikes. But you find out that they’re not available. Why? Because apparently 2,000 production bicycles are held up from shipping because there’s a shortage of a particular metal brake part. No known delivery date…
This type of thing is happening everywhere.
I’ll bet most of you have encountered such issues within various industries.
I have renewed concerns about supply chain shortages…
I am becoming increasingly concerned. My gut instinct feels a bit different than during early 2020. We know a lot more now. We have witnessed what happened. The shortages that did occur. However this time I have renewed concerns about what may be coming. This Fall. Winter. Maybe sooner?
Preparedness is largely motivated by recognition of systemic risks to our way of life. I sense MORE potential disruption than we experienced during 2020. Here’s the how and why of my thinking…
First, let me say this… I’m not going to get into the politics and ‘political science’ behind what happened, what is currently happening, and that of the ultimate goal. Rather, I recognize it, know it with certainty, and will adapt to whatever unfolds. I cannot change it.
Even as I type, there are new lockdowns occurring all across regions of the rest of world. The ‘variants’. We’re not even in flu season yet. It’s still several months away. That tells me this… When we do get there, the manufactured fear is going to be crazy. The result of which is going to be very, very bad for the supply chains of the world. Supply chain shortages will become much, much worse.
Here’s the thing. Businesses (especially small and mid-size businesses) have already be largely crushed from 2020 till present. Even many larger businesses are affected. Industries experiencing all sorts of supply chain disruptions. So, when renewed “lockdowns” and over-reactions take place yet again, this is going to be even worse for the supply chains of the world.
More supply chain shortages coupled with price inflation.
Couple this with present inflation. It’s bad out there! Costs and prices for everything are up, and up! Have you been to the grocery store lately (for example)?! Trying buying a good cut of meat. A good steak. It’s crazy…
My gut tells me that we’re headed towards bigger troubles ahead. Yesterday, Mrs. J and I had a talk about what we might do to help mitigate what may be coming. We’re pretty much well set already, given our preparedness lifestyle of self-reliance to the extent we can. So, what have we decided to do?
Begin spending fiat dollars on the things we were going to do anyway, albeit later on. For example, I have a ‘beef’ chest freezer. It’s down to about ~ 60% capacity at this moment. So, although the cost of beef is outrageous, it’s going to get worse. Inflation, and, potential supply chain shortages as “stuff happens”.
We have, and are still making other bigger purchases that were on our to-do list.
The trick is to “beat the crowd”. I beat the crowd during early 2020. I stocked up on everything we needed. As a result, there were no shortages in our household as others scrambled for supplies.
I see the writing on the wall. And what I’m reading ‘aint good.
We might be looking at a major breakdown of the social fabric of a thin-veneered society. Especially in places. Particularly blue places, if you get my drift. Though the affects will be felt everywhere.
We have been forewarned by Klaus Schwab and other global elite. They have told us. Clearly. I know the Rockefeller plan. Personally, I don’t believe (at this juncture) that it will be stopped. It is happening, right now.
You might want to seriously think about economic breakdown to varying extents, inflation/hyperinflation, cyber attacks on major infrastructure (they’ve told us), renewed lockdowns heading into flu season, supply chain shortages and breakdowns, and, civil breakdown.
I do not believe we’re going back to the way it was.
Beat The Crowd.
