In 2021, the supply chain crisis dominated the news. After a year of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, the U.S. economy rebounded initially because of consumer spending and government stimulus. However, 18 months of economic growth was coupled with pandemic inflation pressures. The coronavirus reshaped supply and demand, which had a domino effect throughout the chain.
