Topic: Global Supply Chains and Pandemic Prices
Hiccups in the global supply chains during the pandemic drove prices to record highs. In May this year, the U.S. consumer Price Index rose 5%, a 13-year record high. Mostly driven (one-third) by the price of used cars that rose 30%. New car sales rose past a record 7 million vehicles as dealer inventory fell to historical lows, while automotive manufacturers closed plants. The biggest reason: shortage of computer chips from contract manufacturers (foundries) in Asia. Experts predict high car prices will continue until 2023.
Both the problems and possible solutions are global and complex.
