Last week, we asked readers, "The administration is utterly clueless about the economic impacts of the United States supply chain crisis. Which element (link) in the supply chain has you most concerned?" Voters were given five different options to choose from and a total of 565 readers voiced their thoughts on the question.
The majority of contributors believe that "backed up cargo ships at America's ports - both importing and exporting" are the most concerning link in the supply chain, receiving 66.37 percent of the vote (375 readers).
The remaining votes were divided. "Shipping goods imported to warehouses" most concerned 2.21 percent of respondents (69 readers), "carrying goods to retail operations" concerned 10.97 percent (62 readers), and "the stocking goods at retailers," concerned 7.61 percent (43 readers). Finally, 2.83 percent believe there are no concerning supply issues and that "this is all caused by an increase in demand and economic expansion, as the Biden White House says" (16 readers).
The U.S. economy has struggled under President Biden over the past nine months and shows no signs of improving soon. Not only are gas, groceries, and other goods rising in price, but many stores cannot meet product demand due to these shipping issues. Economists warn that Thanksgiving and Christmas will likely be expensive for many families, urging Americans to prepare well in advance of the holiday season.
