The U.S. Shipping Crisis

A good, no, great read about the US shipping crisis. This was supposedly written by a 20 year old truck driver. It reminds me of the Texas Power Crisis, in that the problems are easy to see and easy to fix, but established actors will actually profit from the failures caused by their own lack of investment. So there is no real hope without some sort of intervention, probably by the federal government. Will that happen? I’m not optimistic. Get ready to pay more, perhaps a lot more, for less. Seems to be the new American way.

Update: the article is by a 20 year trucking veteran, not a 20 year old. Thought he sounded very well informed for a 20 year old.
