Isn’t the situation potentially serious enough without the dramatic voice inflection? That drama style won’t fix anything, nor help those already afraid…might cause fear -- which doesn’t help anything -- in those that aren’t shaking in their boots. What does that accomplish? Some may start to buy some supplies, but the fear that it’s done in, that might be maintained, is too high a cost. The information may be factual, but in my thinking, is overshadowed by the dramatic presentation. High-emotion -- yeah, just what we need more of in these times.
Replace that with clarity, discernment, logic, wisdom…then action.

The thought also struck me that this kind of ‘reporting’ will lead to panic buying which only serves to exacerbate the problem.

In my area Northern Kentucky there isn’t any shortage yet except for a few items. I’m at the store 4 times a week and very well stocked on all essentials just incase‼️

When I’m at my home in Japan, we shop daily, always fresh food, Japanese homes don’t have cabinets for stocking goods. Canned goods are for the box in the car, for emergency evac for tsunamis and earthquakes.

Re: Cost of shipping, reflects turnaround time. Consider 88 ships waiting LA/LB harbors unload time expected to be 704 days. That’ 2 years basically
Why would any shipping Co. normally have a departure From port, 7-9 days travel time, 24-48 hrs unload time, another 7-9 days travel time to original port of departure at a cost of $2,000 per unit trade that for:
Departure from port, 7-9 days travel time anchor at arrival port for 30-60-90 days and maybe 72-96 hr. (or more) unload time, 7-9 days travel time to port of origin, and NOT raise their cost per unit. Ships cost a very large amount of $$$ to run on a daily basis, those crews sitting at anchor cost the same per day whether at anchor or underway.
Bottom line: round trip @$2,000 per unit,16 days = $125.00 Day -- break even.
VS: round trip @ @ $16,000 per unit, only 365 day wait = 43.83 -- well below break even. Thats if you can even get the containers.
We let our politiik-ians and corporations blow it in the search for cheaper prices. Buying, producing, providing, locally/regionally would have alleviated this problem. But Nooooo, we have Almonds grown in California that are shipped to Italy so we can import Almonds from Italy. And that boys and girls, in a nutshell, is the main problem with “International trade”.
We have outsourced our life’s necessities with necessities we should be providing for ourselves. A long term cutting our own throats dealio.

I believe he’s correct -- the areas will start where the population is large -- the trickle down effect will affect everyone

True wealth, real wealth is land and the ability to feed yourself and your family from it. The average suburban back yard could easily hold enough raised beds to grow much of what a family will need. Add in a small chicken coop and / or rabbit hutch and one can be well n their way to self sufficiency.
Of course, you need to plan on someone trying to take it when the bad times arrive.
