If you haven’t started preparing, you are going to have a difficult time getting the things you’ll need to stock up on. Prices are going up in the aftermath of fiat currency created by the central bankster criminals, and the shortages are only just in the beginning stages. The mainstream media says we should “get used to it.”

According to the Seattle Times, delays, product shortages and rising costs continue to bedevil businesses large and small. And consumers are confronted with an experience once rare in modern times: no stock available, and no idea when it will come in.

In the face of an enduring shortage of computer chips, Toyota this month announced that it would slash its global production of cars by 40%. Factories around the world are limiting operations — despite powerful demand for their wares — because they cannot buy metal parts, plastics, and other raw materials. Construction companies are paying more for paint, lumber, and hardware while waiting weeks and sometimes months to receive what they need. –Seattle Times

“There is a genuine uncertainty here,” said Adam S. Posen, a former member of the Bank of England’s (so a banking cartel member) monetary policy committee and now the president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. Normalcy might be “another year or two” away, he added.  Considering this is a central banker making these comments, we should take this as a threat.  They are not out to help anyone.

Global shipping prices spiked beginning back in March of this year, and as many goods became scarce, the finite economic law of supply and demand took hold.  There are more fiat dollars chasing fewer goods.  It isn’t difficult to figure out what happened.   Consumers in the United States and other wealthy countries had taken pandemic lockdowns as the impetus to add gaming consoles and exercise bikes to their homes, swamping the shipping industry with cargo, and exhausting the supplies of many components. After a few months, many assumed, factories would catch up with demand, and ships would work through the backlog.

Obviously, that isn’t going to happen.

“There is no end in sight,” said Alan Holland, chief executive of Keelvar, a company based in Cork, Ireland, that makes software used to manage supply chains. “Everybody should be assuming we are going to have an extended period of disruptions.”

Prepare and keep preparing. Prices will not go down and the supply chains will remain destroyed for the foreseeable future. It won’t take much at this point to have empty grocery stores across this entire country.
