    Costco Shoppers See Toilet Paper, Water Disappear From Store Shelves As Shortages Strike Again

    Thank the Great Reset and building back better. They are looking out for themselves, not us. Typical example of self serving empires being built.

    These are from the words and writings of one Klaus Schwab (Founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum), creator of the Great Reset.

    * “Consumers need products and, if they can’t shop, they will inevitably resort to purchasing them online. As the habit kicks in, people who had never shopped online before will become comfortable with doing so, while people who were part-time online shoppers before will presumably rely on it more. This was made evident during the lockdowns. In the US, Amazon and Walmart hired a combined 250,000 workers to keep up with the increase in demand and built massive infrastructure to deliver online. This accelerating growth of e-commerce means that the giants of the online retail industry are likely to emerge from the crisis even stronger than they were in the pre-pandemic era”. “As more and diverse things and services are brought to us via our mobiles and computers, companies in sectors as disparate as e-commerce, contactless operations, digital content, robots and drone deliveries (to name just a few) will thrive. It is not by accident that firms like Alibaba, Amazon, Netflix or Zoom emerged as ‘winners’ from the lockdowns”.


    * “It is our defining moment” “Many things will change forever”. “A new world will emerge”. “The societal upheaval unleashed by COVID-19 will last for years, and possibly generations”. “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never”

    * "Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes. In so doing, they will shape a ‘new normal’ radically different from the one we will be progressively leaving behind. Many of our beliefs and assumptions about what the world could or should look like will be shattered in the process"

    * “The pandemic will accelerate innovation even more, catalysing technological changes already under way (comparable to the exacerbation effect it has had on other underlying global and domestic issues) and ‘turbocharging’ any digital business or the digital dimension of any business”. (111)

    * “With the pandemic, the ‘digital transformation’ that so many analysts have been referring to for years, without being exactly sure what it meant, has found its catalyst. One major effect of confinement will be the expansion and progression of the digital world in a decisive and often permanent manner.

    Probably mimicking the contrived high price of lumber where the mills withheld stock. Wood is wood.

    Yes because there was a shortage at stores where the price went up 400%. Investigation showed it was not gouging by the stores or the fault of shipping or forestry but the mills withholding product.

    Neither of those are responsible for supply chain dislocation (due to COVID-19) or consumer panic buying patterns (also due to COVID-19) - which is what is responsible for the shortages seen here.

    You want a better example of what the above two factors can result in, look at the shortages in the UK.

    Thanks to the abject stupidity that was Brexit, the UK cut or regulated itself out of some of its major supply chains, and/or increased the impediments to the free movement of goods across its border.

    This was then worsened by labour flows out of the country - which meant that much of the cheap labour in the transportation sector has exited the UK - and COVID-19 - which put more pressure than normal on the transportation sector, which was now stretched due to labour shortages.

    End result is that the UK is facing the worst supply chain issues in nearly 60 years.

    And as is noted, an experiment of the Great Reset world wide.

    Yes, really....

    Brexit - the separation of the UK from the EU common market - is an "experiment" of the "Great Reset".

    It's not like the UK wasn't warned this would happen to its supply chains. Back in 2017 (and 2018, and 2019). By both official and unofficial sources. It's also not as if COVID-19's impact on supply chains globally isn't exceptionally well documented.

    No, instead lets wildly assert a nebulous conspiracy theory is responsible.

    This invisible ghost made me fall over, not the obvious hole in the ground.
