Maybe I did not use the word well but what I want to imply that with the overpopulation many of the foods have increased their prices I live on the border of Mexico and the United States and I see that a lot in Mexico and the increase in population.Define “skyrocketing”.
No. no they haven’t .
I don't think that will happen.What I mean by "SHTF situation" is the a collapse of the government, economy, Jobs, and so on
Assuming China moves on Taiwan, and succeeds, since they've already laid claim to Okinawa, it is a simple conclusion to believe they could easily island hop all the way up to Japan.China senses weakness in the Biden administration.
They have wanted Taiwan for decades.
Since Taiwan is a US ally this could get us embroiled in a shooting war.
That is a scenario that could happen. Our electrical grid is not fortified in anyway and no backups. It would take many months to repair our electrical grid from a large scale attack against it.I don't think that will happen.
In my 73 years I have seen some turbulent times in our society, yet we are still here.
HOWEVER - if the Chinese, or Russians use cyber warfare to, say, collapse our electrical grid, then millions of Americans will die and things would be very bad indeed.
The supply chain issue is growing. I posted a survey on this topic. I have been watching this develop for a while. Here is a good question, why are we (the US) stopping the shipping of goods to our ally Australia for a few months? On our side of things, we have truckers waiting hours and days to take shipping containers from the shipping sites where we are backed up. Why? This is not a good situation for us or the world. I believe the shipping issue and overall supply chain issue will start to resolve in 2022 however, the ripples will be felt for decades!Right now we are seeing a supply chain problem.
When you shut down the world for even a few weeks, you WILL get ripple effects.
When you futz around with the mechanics of an economy thinking your going to "fix" things, you often make it worse, and every world government did that.
It could get worse before it gets better, but there isn't anything truly looming on the horizon other than a Chinese threat to Taiwan/Japan. If they make that move, it could hurt global tech markets, since Taiwan is a primary manufacturer of microchips.
