You're not wrong, but the changes you're talking about, having a strategic 2-5 year stockpile at all times, would require either government intervention or substantially higher prices in order to increase capacity beyond the normal. Both of those are worse.yes covid is only a year old but 9-11 was how long ago. just another shortage with the same excuses
how many times you going to smash your thumb hammering nails before you learn to move it?
how many shortages do we have to deal with before they make changes?
keep doing the same thing expecting different results is the definition of insanity
