    summary of why there isnt a quick fix and we're gonna have to churn? Or why the ports dont work round the clock?

    I was out of the loop on the ports being a big bottleneck in the supply chain right now. So I suppose both, yikes.

    I didnt watch what he’s referring to. Idk why the ports aren’t running 24/7. Seems like commons sense that they should. Maybe they can’t get workers for what they’ll pay them idk.

    As far as the larger supply chain issue - there’s no immediate fix because companies under estimated the speed we’d return to normalcy. It takes a while for them to ramp up production. Also the bottle neck at the ports has causes a container shortage. Except that it’s not a shortage they just can’t unload them fast enough to put them back in the supply chain cycle.

    There’s no policy that can address this. It’s supply side inflation. What we can do is address issues to prevent this in the future. Something like… oh i dont know… an infrastructure bill or something silly like that.

    Logisitics is also a fucking mess because of a truck shortage because of a micro chip shortage.

    They can’t get people and also there are safety and maintenance reasons to not running ports 247 in a normal environment.

    Biden added money to the CARES act that increases funding to get chip manufacturing going domestically. That’s actually a big deal that will pay off in the future. But that takes a lot of time w no immediate pay off. So no headlines or convo for it

    This is the video I was referring to fwiw. My surprise is that the docks weren't operating 24/7 when many major shipping ports around the world do.

    This country has treated black folks like shit forever but the upside is we are rarely snowed by anything that happens. Obama was probably the biggest moment in my lifetime but in hindsight (for me) he was just another politician.
