Ukraine invasion may hit chip supply chain – analysts

Why do we keep on hearing of these 1 nation dependencies for resources? I assume that 70% of the Neon comes from the Ukraine because they supply it cheaper, but why does nobody seem to plan for the loss of these resources? Isn't that something that governments worldwide are supposed to be doing? We keep on hearing about resource issues (the last one was rare-earth metals from China and they still seem to have a strangle hold on that market) and yet nobody seems to do anything about them. Perhaps if our governments would do their ****ing jobs instead of posturing on Twatter or uttering their latest blatant lie, we might not have this type of problem. Yes, I am fully aware of market economics, but if your country/industry depends on a particular resource, you are a complete idiot if you rely on only once source.
