There are 4 comments on Supply Chain Crisis Could Screw Up Your Holiday Shopping

  1. Nutella and cars may be hard to acquire, but in terms of holiday shopping, there is no shortage of locally made and sourced products along with arts & culture opportunities. These also happen to be the businesses that have been hardest hit by the challenges of Covid. Mega companies will be just fine.Think and shop local, you will not regret it.

  2. I believe there is a mistake in the article – TSMC, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, is a Taiwanese company, not a Korean semiconductor manufacturer as mentioned in this article.

    Thank you.

  3. This is a good article about the supply chain disruption we are facing now. There are glitches. As ELIZA points out, TSMC is a Taiwanese semiconductor company, which is the primary competitor of Samsung, the Korean company. In addition, I think that the words “import” and “export” were misused in this sentence: “we import to them is so little compared to what we export from China”. It would look better like this: “we export to them is so little compared to what we import from China”
