December Poll #1
Continued Effects from the Thai Floods?
This week we continue our discussion about the ongoing effects of the severe flooding in Thailand. 44% of last week’s voters felt the surge was caused by actual production shortages caused by the break in the supply chain in the wake of the floods, and there was a 22% equal split on purchasing to stores to hedge against potential shortages and cyclical seasonal demand approaching the holidays.
We’re curious to get your take on the issue and get a consensus on when everyone thinks things will stabilize from producers in Thailand in the coming year.
