And The Consequences Are ?
1.) Don't recycle cars as early. Spend more effort and money into repairing old cars. Do we really need the chrome blink as much as we think ? This maintains very good jobs in every local economy.
2.) Boneheaded Auto Managers should use their brains and dont shut down their demand of components totally. This would signal the components/chips/resistor/etc producers that this business is real. If there is not enough money in a crisis, go to national leaders and demand special credit for this purpose from banks like KFW.
3.) The enormous monetary expansion we had in the last 15 years will create "shortages" at the "current" price points. Who would have thunken that ?
4.) Instead of throwing more CPUs and more RAM at any problem, maybe we developers should aim for better algorithms and generally more efficient approaches. Ditch PHP, use Sappeur, Rust. https://sappeur.ddnss.de
5.) Due to monetary expansion, raw materials such as sand for concrete is running out. Yes, sand running out. Maybe we should not expand money at that breakneck speed ?
6.) When fuel is getting short/expensive (as it has been in the last months), maybe we should all take local vacations instead of a flight to Mallorca or Florida ? Airbus and Boeing are going to hate this idea, but these corporations are there to serve the public and not the other way around. Maybe they also should do more repairs than crazy production numbers.
7.) In general, a well-managed money system will handle any shortage. People will become very creative when something (say a CPU) increases in its price tenfold. Then they will tell the engineer to use a more efficient programming language (see 4.)
