For the week of March 20, 2022:
Entering 2022, global supply chains were already struggling. Add a post-Olympic war in Eastern Europe and another wave of the pandemic in China and Hong Kong.
Never a dull day for logistics expert and newsletter publisher Glenn Ross of ACC Group in Surrey, B.C.
Ross says the longer Russia’s war against Ukraine (which involves major wheat and fertilizer exporters), the higher the price for fuel and food and the greater likelihood of unrest in poorer countries.
The sanctions and isolation of Russia haven’t stopped Vladimir Putin, so what’s NATO’s next move? Meanwhile, a new round of lockdowns in China as omicron spreads, shutting factories and delaying shipments.
“I think the posturing by the Russian government that they want to do peace talks, I think is nothing more than a false flag,” says Ross, the featured guest on this week’s theBreaker.news Podcast. “They’ve been knocked senseless by the Ukrainians.”
Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines and commentary.
