“No toys at Christmas” warning as global supply crisis deepens – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Around the world supply chain problems are affecting the supply of goods, as the easing of the Covid pandemic leads to a sudden surge in consumer demand.

Cargo ships at many ports are stuck, unable to offload their containers, because the docks are already full.

France’s Finance Minister, speaking at a meeting of the International Monetary Fund in Washington, said there were shortages everywhere, with suppliers struggling to cope with the rise in demand.

Good, we don’t need more “stuff”. We’re already too materialistic. Better to donate the stuff we’re currently hoarding to those in need.

I know the correspondent has only a few minutes to explain a complex issue, but I don't think there's any evidence that suggests the current supply chain issues are due to a greater than expected rebound in demand.
