Everyday items usually available from Amazon, usually with 2-4 day delivery, now are in serious backorder status, meaning their supply lines are affected probably by the work stoppages here and abroad. Many items are backordered, and deliverable in a month or so. What are we going to do if we cannot obtain simple items for the maintenance of our households? Couldn’t we obtain these items from Mexico or something? The supply line there is shorter, and we can more easily monitor what is going on.
This suggests in a short time Amazon may cease being so amazing. Obviously we cannot rely on the usual supply lines and the Internet for all our things. Walmart shelves are spotty. Hmm. If we stay at home for long we may have a real problem on our hands, whether or not we have cash on hand. It is what a billionaire feels like. You got the money but cannot spend it fast enough.
