Are Cental Bankers Crippling the Global Supply Chain?

Gordon T Long and Charles Hugh Smith begin 'pealing the onion' on a deteriorating global supply chain and what the root cause is.

VIDEO: 35 Minutes - 21 Slides

SAMSUNG'S GALAXY BATTERY JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Though the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery problem is presently receiving a tremendous amount of media and public attention, what few appreciate is that it is only the tip of the iceberg of cracks in the global supply chained as a result of unintended consequences of central bank monetary policies. In this 35 minute video Gordon T Long and Charles Hugh Smith begin 'pealing the onion' on a deteriorating global supply chain and what the root cause is.

Economists have been preoccupied since the 2008 Financial Crisis with stimulating economic growth through policies which attempt to create Demand. It is debatable whether these Keynesian stimulus programs have succeeded, but what isn't debatable is that cheap money has exploded global supply!

PEAK PROFITS

Though Corporate Profits are presently at all time highs, revenue growth and margins are rolling over and cashflows are falling. This has been placing incredible pressures through out the global supply chain. It is resulting in deteriorating product quality when considered in light of total cost of ownership and whether the customer is actually getting more for less or whether they are now receiving less for more!

slide24

WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM WALMART, WELLS FARGO and PEAK PROFITS

The pressures big distribution players like Wal-Mart are placing on global product suppliers is well recognized. What is less recognized is how internal cultures are changing due to increasing pressures and demands. This issue has received the glare of the public spotlight through the deviant behavior of Wells Fargo. What we witnessed during testimony before congress because of the fraudulent creation of thousands of fictional accounts and the resulting firing of thousands of apparent guilty parties is that the top down pressures by executives to meet unrealistic goals is causing workers at all levels to "cheat"!

Senior executives are fired for not meeting quarterly financial goals even if the economy is slowing and profits are at historic levels. Something has to give somewhere and that "give" is occurring in the hidden bowels of product quality.

slide26

DETERIORATING QUALITY

Gordon's background allows him to critically examine the quality issues he has personally experienced over the last 6 weeks and what these examples are indicating.  The examples highlighted include:

  • Marine Propulsion
  • Automotive Repair
  • Dell Hard Drives and HP NIC Cards
  • Gas Range Lighting
  • Healthcare
  • TV Programming

The conclusion is that this is only the initial waves of more to come.

In a conversation Gordon had with the head of Global Supply Chain for a major corporation he was told that focus had been taken off this critical area over the last few years but was now being urgently attended to. Samsung has added additional urgency as the public and regulators will be intolerant the next time such an event occurs..

PUSHING COSTS TO THE UNSUSPECTING

The cost of poor quality is now being pervasively felt across the entire supply chains. It beginning to reach out and impact all participants. It like a cancer which growths quietly and often it is to late when finally detected.

slide25

CONSUMERS GETTING LESS FOR MORE

WHAT WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE

In a “Bottoms Up”, Sound Money, Competitive, Capitalism Economy :

You Get MORE for LESS

In a “Top Down”, Manipulated, Over Regulated , Fiat Crony Economy:

You Get LESS for MORE

WHAT WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND

We are Steadily Getting Less and Less for More and More!

(Moving towards Statism)

Eventually You Get Nothing at the Cost of Everything

(Socialism)
