Editorial: Supply chain crunch offers opportunity for Seattle | The Seattle Times

The Seattle Times Editorial Board writes of the global supply chain: “The pandemic has thrown that system into disarray, leading to a breakdown that’s manifested in different ways, including empty shelves at the grocery store, school team uniforms undelivered until after the postseason and even new cars sitting idle at the factory, lacking needed components … With the holiday season around the corner, things are expected to get worse before they get better. But these short-term challenges can lead to long-term opportunities for the region.” Debra Glassman, teaching professor of finance and business economics at the UW, is quoted.
