The blooming post-pandemic economy certainly has all the warning signs of collapse, but what needs to happen before the bubble pops? And what will happen when the crash comes?
Those are just some of the questions plaguing Zach Strickland and Anthony Smith on this episode of Freightonomics. The two debate where the economy is headed and if surfing the high freight market wave is enough to carry through the end of the year.
Smith and Strickland touch on inflation in the manufacturing and consumer goods space, the continued capacity constraints, and how carriers have the upper hand when it comes to freight negotiations — and will have that hand well into the future.
