As the world gets further connected, materials start to arrive from everywhere to produce goods.
I realize that this sounds like “Econ Duh 101” but every so often I read something that just reminds me of this interconnectivity and how it can impact things I never really think about. In this case, steel made in China for beer kegs. When I think beer, I think about the base ingredients, I think about getting something from the brewery to market but I don’t put as much effort into the vessels that contain said product.
The article is a little long but it gave me something to chew on, not just in regards to getting what you paid for, but also about why it’s worth paying people well for quality work.
This is the last post until Oct 13. I’m on the road again!
