There are a lot of variables at play here in our economy. When you shut down everything and people continue to purchase items that are not being, manufactured, built, etc. Whatever was stored in a warehouse as stock will, at some point, become depleted. Factories, i know factories, that is where I have spent my career in, have warehouses that they pull from and that is where they determine their production schedules. When those places become empty and the place they received parts from, that they used to build their parts, become empty, and follow that all the way down the line. When you create incentives for people to stay at home and not go to work then that creates a shortage in the work force. Our local economy has tons of jobs but the factories are finding it very hard to hire anyone. One factory I know of has a job fair every Saturday, and sometimes only about two or three people may show up. Throw into that whole mess the closure of that oil pipeline that could have put our nation into a position to be independent of other nations for our oil. You have now the ever increasing price of gasoline and other energy sources in our country, it is hard to recover with just those elements involved. Not counting the ripple effect from those things alone, prices will climb and I hope we peek at a certain point, soon. In a consumer economy, we stopped the train, and I am not sure what it will take to get it moving again. I know it will take a long time before it seems normal again. I am surprised that we have not had more of a food shortage. And we may not have ran this thing out yet, the ripple effect. I have watched certain things in my local grocery store increase a dollar within a weeks time, crazy.
Ford has yet to hit the EV car monster that could bury them in the coming years.
