The War In Ukraine Is Putting Global Supply Chains To The Test - Again


  • Even before the war began, supply chain frictions had only improved marginally from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, with regards to yields and acreage, I think we have another period like the Arab Spring years shaping up, what with all the weather issues. Throw in war on top of these worsening climate change impacts, and things could go sky high. Much depends on how much China can grow at home. They're not immune to these impacts and I'm not sure if Russia will be able to save them. It looks rather dry right now in Russia's major grain producing area near Ukraine. In summary, I think its shaping up to be another rough one.
It will be not a good test for Europe.
the sanctions will probably cause more issues than the war itself.
