Today, the White House Council of Economic Advisors released the annual Economic Report of the President, which warns that supply chain issues likely won’t be resolved when the pandemic ends. The report found that although modern supply chains have done an amazing job of cutting costs, they are also highly fragile. In the report, the research team wrote: “Because of outsourcing, offshoring and insufficient investment in resilience, many supply chains have become complex and fragile.” The fragility of this system means that it is acutely vulnerable to global disruptions. With Climate Change increasing the frequency of natural disasters, future supply chain disruptions, similar to those caused by last year’s flooding across Europe and Asia, will be inevitable.
