I hate seeing all the crazy price increases across the border right now.
I know that inflation has been complicated for a lot of different markets, because it’s not caused by one particular causal factor.
The pandemic on itself was a huge catalyst for the economic situation we’re facing right now. Right away there were supply lines shortages because workers had to conform to new guidelines set forward by the cdc. However, it was also because people were getting sick and dying at the same time. A lot of companies had to send workers home in quarantine for 2 weeks at a time. You can only imagine what that does to all of the supply lines and therefore the prices that have to match it. Demand is the same or goes off while supply stagnates, prices are naturally going to increase. I don’t think we’ve gotten out of that to be honest with you. And then all of the other factors we’ve seen have just compounded the existing problem. Right now I’m trying to get an air purifier for my bedroom but they’ve gone up in price. I’m very frustrated with the process of trying to find a new machine when I can’t afford the new prices. I need an air purifier for my bedroom because of my asthma problems. It’s really important for me to have air that’s being filtered 24 hours a day. Any dust that comes in from other rooms or from outside quickly it’s put into the air filter inside my air purifier. These machines are essential for my long term health.
