If you read the papers, listen to or watch the news, or follow news on social media, you will be aware of a narrative that is increasingly anchoring supply chain issues and shortages of all sorts of things on the fallout from the Covid Pandemic, the Invasion of Ukraine and even Brexit.
It is because supply chain disruption has been involved with all of these events of what has followed them, that this very specific truth is being rolled out as the excuse for the systemic crash or ‘The Great Reset’ that is now underway.
After all. The greatest lies or marketing plans inevitably hinge on the tiniest of truths.
Sadly, We are all destined to wake up from the unreality of a world where everything has just appeared in our lives after a click or a short trip.
The Global Supply Chain has been built on greed and a convenient lie.
We have just accepted that it is cheaper to make and grow the things that we need on the other side of the world and then transport them to our front doors more cheaply than it would be for them to be made or grown and then sold to us at the end of our street. We believe that it has benefitted us to do so.
We have never though to ask the question, ‘Do we really need these things if they are coming to us from this far away?’
We have never asked the question, ‘How can it be possible for these things from far away to be cheaper than they would be home-made or home-grown?’
We have never asked the question. ‘What is the real cost to all of us?’
