Default Supply Chain Shenanigans

The latest from The American Prospect is a special issue diving deep into the supply chain crisis and so far it is excellent.

How We Broke the Supply Chain - The American Prospect

But here was the bargain: In exchange for funneling all this money upward, hollowing out the industrial base, ruining competitive markets, and worsening U.S. jobs, businesses would keep consumer prices low. And low prices have a definite psychological pull. That belief in getting more for less, of perceiving that youíve beat the system, was enough to keep people reasonably satisfied. If you are stuck with low wages, you depend on low prices. As long as shelves were stocked, and Americaís desires were covered with overseas goods, this radical reinvention of the supply chain kept us fulfilled. Until it didnít.

Wait, I thought the supply chain crisis was only in Britain and only because of Brexit

...and why does anyone think if they elect the correct politicians that their personal interests will be accounted for?

Limited government is the only way to protect the average people from those without a soul.
What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. ... The origin of myths is explained in this way.
