    The bell weather to me? The price of shipping containers and how many are surplus for sales.

    Global trade keeps prices (and wages) down in some kind of overall balancing act. When it gets out of balance, that’s when it causes internal problems. Global trade also helps to keep wars to a minimum- and we’ll see if this leads to another level of fighting like when global trade took a nose dive after the Great Depression.
    My old man wanted another shipping container recently for storage and after checking prices decided against it.
    He bought one just before the dempanic started and now they want two and a half times more for the container and triple the delivery fee.

    They must not need to sell them as much as the news says they do.

    Manufacturing is still hot, and things still need to move. My point on pricing is that it will come, but not yet.

    Container prices are crazy high, yet I hear empty containers are being illegally dumped all over the place around the ports cause they can't get anyone to take the empties back. I hear that they dump them in business parks and even residential neighborhoods. How'd you like to wake up to that blocking your driveway?
    Go Ukraine! Piss on the Russian dead.

    That's what the news says, but I doubt it's as bad as they say otherwise the prices would be set to sell them.

    If it blocked my driveway I'd push t aside (we own a trucking company) call a buddy whose company hauls them and find out who owns it, inform them I just charged them $25k moving and storage fees or the could send me the paperwork for ownership so I could give it to my old man.

    I dont get lucky enough for that to happen.

    That Reuters article will actually reduce your IQ temporarily if you read it. Here is my favorite part of this journalistic gem...

    Assault-style rifles are lightweight, semi-automatic weapons popular among hunters in the United States. They also are capable of causing severe damage to humans when they tear through organs, bones and muscle in rapid fire.
    Reminder, we don't need to ruin every thread with social/political commentary and thread drift. Sometimes, it's okay to just talk about the topic.

    Yeah, unlike Pedo Joe's shotgun which don't cause any damage to bones or organs.

    Sadly Reuters is the only one reporting the "as of today" update on this nonsense.
