today the guy at the computer shop where we ordered an asus 27'' monitor with eye protection filter from blue light, told us that everything he orders to his supplier won' t arrive until february because of covid which is slowing down every good from outside this ''country''. Same thing for other shops and suppliers here. What will the final damage be, to our economies ? And why are those who are responsible for all of that, the only ones that are growing ?

The supply chains are screwed up everywhere. Part of it is also increased demand. So many folks have been sitting at home buying stuff, making home improvements, setting up better home offices, etc. that suppliers can't keep up.

I have a friend who works at Home Depot (he's ludicrously over-qualified, but whatever, it makes him a good source for information). He tells me that even Home Depot's own hubs are totally jammed. Two weeks ago, they were begging stores to send staff to the hub on over-time wages to help move product. They had trucks stacked 20 deep!

 

The supply chain issues are not all directly due to covid issues and not entirely due to economic negatives. But there are a lot of disruptions.

hope you are right and these problems are due to increasing demand, it would mean we are re-starting and that is all we want

Anecdotal, but a lot of folks had a lot of spare disposable income since they couldn't go out to bars, restaurants, and shows. I have a friend who has non-trivial means and good taste in food and wine. He was literally saying, "I have no place to spend my entertainment budget!" He can only drink so much wine at home and he never did skimp on the quality. Poor guy! A lot of people, when they feel flush, but are mildly (or more) depressed engage in retail therapy. I know we've been doing a ton of projects around the house and some stocking up, too.
