The salmon anecdote reminded me that Corona-chan is going to help restore sealife and reduce extinction of rare animals. Truly she is the saviour we deserve.NFG. Those who don't listen just have to feel. Anyone with two brain cells could tell that having so many supplier eggs in one basket, at such a great distance from home, combined with the just-in-time inventory model was just asking for trouble. just too many vulnerable nodes in the system.
So these companies will spend the money they thought saved on getting substitutes, if possible, and relocating operations outside of China. Hey, when you are blinded by short-term profits you tend not to see a lot of things.
Went to the commissary today. Wife wanted frozen salmon. Looked around, found frozen salmon. Caught in China. No. Found some USA-produced salmon fillets. Paid more than for the Chinese-caught fish, but don't care. Look around at your frozen fish. More from China than might be thought. That will be another group of products that will be in short supply before long.
Also got the new laptop today, and have put it away.
