A curated link post on the food shortage we’re facing by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse based on an email from an Industry Insider.
Commentary On The Food Shortages
Mr. Snyder, just as he did last week, outlines the shortages for us, only this time its product, not people. We’re all feeling both the worker shortages and the food shortages.
Obviously, one is helping fuel the other. The lack of “willing” workers is directly impacting what we’re currently experiencing in the form of food shortages, among other commodities and price increases.
I’ve heard from preppers all over the country, and a few in other countries, and it’s the same everywhere. Few places have been untouched by this crisis. And it IS a crisis.
Again, nothing new here. We’ve been watching this unfold for a year and a half now. This issue, for most “normal people“, is that they keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting for everything to get back to normal.
In the meantime, food shortages, while not quite as bad as early last year, are coming around again and hitting us hard. Somehow, the food shortage crisis is finding people, yet again, unprepared. That amazes me. It’s beyond disturbing.
I believe we’re about to redefine the term ‘normal‘ and no one’s going to like it.Another almost famous quote by Brian D. Hawkins
The email shared by Michael Snyder only helps verify what most preppers have already suspected – it ain’t getting any better. Not anytime soon. Maybe not ever.
On a personal note, we’re mostly good. We have enough food and supplies to last many months. Over a year, actually but it wouldn’t be fun.
The one thing Michael brings up in the article that really scares me is the shortage of medications. We’ve known about this for a very long time. The issue with medications is that they are some of the most regulated items in the world and stocking up on prescription medication is very difficult.
Just imagine how many people we interact with daily that may rely on medications to keep them “stable“. How bad can things get if the medication shortage creates that issue?
If you’re still reading this post, I really encourage you to do your best to stock up on food and necessities while you still can and before prices get out of hand.
If you’re not already a prepper, here’s an article and video I’ve put together on Next Step Survival to help you get started:
