Over the weekend, President Biden personally attacked me. OK, fine, it probably wasn’t personal, but it’s still hard not to get a little angsty when, after writing thousands of words on supply chains over the last few months, you hear the president of the United States tell a press gaggle, “you all write for a living. I haven’t seen any of you explain the supply chain very well.”
Well, harumph to you too, Mr. President.
Anyway, I’m mostly kidding about the angst (mostly). However, Biden’s comments do provide us with a good opportunity to check back in on the supply chain situation and to ask whether the president himself really understands what’s driving some of these problems and whether he’s really up to tackling them.
