Randall Terry Goes to the 1988 Democratic Convention, Lands in Jail
"So take us back to 1988. You decide to go to the democratic convention in Atlanta and you put in jail, keep tell that story again. All right, so I'm on CNN crossfire with Pat Buchanan and Mark green. Mark green says, what's next? And I say we're going to Atlanta to the democratic invention. We had no plan. Nothing in place, no infrastructure, nothing. So my staff, they just went crazy and we started sending out letters and making phone calls begging people. Please come to Atlanta and join us and go to jail for three or four days during the convention. So we get there. There's a 137 of us that go on the first morning of the convention. We go to an abortion clinic and we sit down and we start praying, the police arrest us, and when they take us into custody, they, they said, what's your name? And we said, all the men said, my name is baby John Doe. In other women said, my name is baby Jane Doe. Because we wanted to identify with the babies who had no name. So nobody had identification with them known had any money. We knew that they would hold us. And they had this huge warehouse facility with cots. They brought us in, they put us there, and they thought, okay, well, they're being smart, Alex, they'll give us their name and we wouldn't do it. So after a couple of days in this big place, they put us in the key road prison facility. Which was another mistake on their part because they gave us an entire wing of the prison. And during the day, the men and women could hang out in a big area together, and we sang and prayed and had preachers in jail, we had prayer meetings, and Bible studies, 24/7. I mean, literally all day long. And while we're there, the police are negotiating with us and they say, okay, on Friday, at the end of the week, we'll just let you all go. Time served. Well, the attorney for the do versus bolt in case. Now we all are familiar with roe versus wade, but it was actually two cases. Roe versus wade, and Doe versus Bolton. The dough case was critical because it defined health of a woman. So when they stay a woman has an abortion for her health, that can mean financial health, emotional health, up to the day of birth. So the attorney for dough versus Bolton, Marjorie Pitts haymes, she said to the city council and to the police, don't you dare let these people go without giving their names. So we found out that she was the problem. And man, you know, I'm in my 20s. I've got a bunch of young advisers around me. And I thought, you got to be kidding me. You picked the fight with the wrong people. So I went on pat Robertson, CNN. They were letting me do interviews from jail. They would bring cameras up to the fence and let me do interviews or do them on the phone.

Chicago's New Mayor Struggles to Condemn Rampant Youth Violence
"The mayor elect of Chicago, Brandon Johnson. Found it very difficult to condemn, he doesn't condone the large group of young people that were burning cars smashing windows in one or two cases shooting people beating up people a spontaneous eruption of violence for no reason other than these kids were not raised with a moral code. They've been raised with a victim mentality, which is the opposite of a moral code. Because the message of their schools of their media. Social media as well as traditional media is, if you're not white, you're not responsible for your behavior. Whites are responsible for your condition when there is a total green light for acting out. That's what the left is done. The left ruins everything it touches. And many black youth are one of the things they have ruined.

"By saying these sites are different than publishers and they aren't liable for the content users post on the platforms. We'll link to a previous conversation we had with Santa Clara university law professor Eric Goldman about some of the potential outcomes of a Supreme Court decision in that case. He said even if the decision is narrow, meaning social media is still broadly shielded by section two 30, but their algorithmic recommendations aren't, that could lead to platforms pulling back from curating their content like they do now. The other case, Twitter V tomina, centers on whether platforms can be held responsible for not detecting and preventing terrorist groups from using their services. Daphne Keller recently spoke to The New Yorker about the implications of those two cases and we'll link to that as well.

The Montgomery county public school system will launch an app called student strong. It gives students the ability to report bullying, harassment, and intimidation. Chris cram a spokesman for the school system says the app was developed by students. It's very near, ready to be published. We met with the students who are now graduates from Blair high school and often in college. But they designed this. We didn't do that. We helped them with the editorial content. The new app would come just months after a county wide audit uncovered reports of race based bullying and discrimination throughout the school system President Biden's student loan forgiveness plan that's aimed at canceling up to $20,000 in debt is still on hold due to legal challenges and now the Supreme Court has announced that it will hear two cases on that program. Biden administration gave borrowers a little bit more breathing room with their student loan repayments by extending the pause on student loan payments through June 30th, 2023, or if the Supreme Court comes through and allows his program to stand, then the pause may be lifted. But I think at this point, the fate of the program, it is in the hands of the high court. Axios reporter Aaron.

"And they say there's an entire industry to help them appear less Asian on their college applications. I mean, it really seems like using one group against other groups. What did you hear in that argument Dahlia? That was an argument that was advanced in the Harvard case, which was the second case that was heard that by giving racial preferences to certain minorities, were in fact harming other minorities specifically Asian students, one of the things that Seth waxman, who argued on behalf of Harvard said was there's not actually a lot of evidence in the record that there is meaningful harm. This is something that happens at early stages and that of course it's deplorable to ever harm any race at the expense of the other. But I think one of the themes that we saw pulled out throughout, again, the argument is that even considering race on anyone's part for any reason is always going to diminish us and always going to be in violation of the idea of a colorblind constitution. Well, the liberals on the court did speak up talking about the value of diversity. Here's just a Selena Kagan. If you're a hospital and you serve a diverse group of patients, is it super important to you to have a diverse set of doctors? I don't know that the evidence about the diversity of doctors and as Cameron Norris attorney for students for fair admissions, so Dolly, can you tell us more about this line of questioning you heard from the liberal justices that went back to the Fourteenth Amendment defining black Americans as equal under the law we only have about ten seconds Dahlia. No, I think that the idea is always that to have a diverse society to have a better army, better police force, better courts. We need diversity that's been valued for almost 5 decades. That's the thing that is on the chopping block and it's clear schools will be less diverse if affirmative action goes away.

Well, to the midterms now, nearly 1.3 million North Carolina voters have already cast ballots in person and by mail, for next week's elections, that's about a 150,000 more than early voting numbers for the same period in 2018. North Carolina public radio's rusty Jacobs caught up with some of the voters who will determine the outcome of tight races for Congress, the state legislature and the U.S. Senate. Holly springs is a suburb of North Carolina's capital city, Raleigh, the residential area in wake county, is part of the 13th congressional district, where race is seen as key to whether or not Republicans rest control of Congress from Democrats, and it's where Ben men went on the first day of early in person voting to cast her ballot in this year's midterms. Not so much voting for anybody, but more voting against certain ideas that I don't agree with. A registered Democrat, Nguyen said she typically only votes in presidential cycles but felt compelled to vote this year after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that overturned roe V wade end up ended 50 years of precedence protecting a constitutional right to abortion. Nguyen's 21 year old daughter Lauren also voted early. She's a biology major at UNC Chapel Hill and registered unaffiliated. Most of my Friends are quite progressive and quite female. So we all, for the most part, agree, and we were quite upset with the overturning of roe V wade. Their views should be music to the years of wily nickel, the Democrat running against Republican Bo Heinz in this swing congressional district, abortion has been a prominent issue in the 13th district race with nickel supporting a woman's right to choose and Heinz opposing abortion except when a woman's life is in danger and in some cases of rape and incest. 19 year old Justin friendly cast his ballot at a one stop site in the nearby wake county suburb of fuquay varina. He's a student at wake technical community college and he cited his opposition to abortion rights as key to his coming out to vote. There's no regard for the human life. That's lost there.

"Now, world of national news with Nancy Lyons. Thanks hall. The U.S. Supreme Court is taking on the issue of affirmative action policies at colleges in cases brought by groups suing Harvard and the university of North Carolina. Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson during arguments today said it is unclear how much race is used as the only factor in admissions decisions. How is race being used in this process? You keep saying we object to the use of race standing alone. But as I read the record and understand their process, it's never standing alone. Jackson was questioning Patrick strawbridge, who argued against affirmative action saying to consider race and race alone is not consistent with the U.S. Constitution. Well, it's not clear exactly why, but there's a shortage of common antibiotic in the U.S.. We get details from Bloomberg's Amy Morris. Amoxicillin is commonly used to treat ear infections and strep throat in children, the Food and Drug Administration says there's a shortage for drug makers that sell nearly all the amoxicillin in the U.S. have limited supplies of some doses of the liquid form of the medicine which is normally used for kids.

Two cases before New Jersey Supreme Court today could determine the future of compassionate release for prisoners, double NYC's Karen yee reports. The issue before the court is whether state judges have discretion to keep a dying or incapacitated person in prison, even if they check all the boxes qualifying for compassionate release. A prisoner who receives 24 hour medical care or has 6 months to live and doesn't pose a safety risk is eligible for release under the law. But in one case, a local judge declined to release an inmate who shot and killed a Newark detective inside a courthouse 30 years ago. The prisoner is bedridden with end stage multiple sclerosis and can't bathe eat or dress on his own. But the judge said even though he met the requirements of the law, he deserved zero compassion due to the heinous and cold blooded nature of his crime, just two people have been released since the law took effect.

"But overall, the members doing well. Remember could use the tools on money for the rest of us plus to get some guide for kind of creating an overall portfolio or the member could continue to use the robo adviser service or hire potentially an investment adviser, but in this case, I don't know if the assets are large enough to make it worthwhile. Because there is the additional fee, but it all comes down to why higher adviser, is it to generate higher returns, which typically isn't a very good reason to hire an adviser because most won't be able to generate a higher return than we could do for ourselves. So it's more of a question of, do we want to do it? Do we want the peace of mind to having someone else do it? And not have to worry about it. At all, particularly as we get older. That's a reasonable decision. But ultimately, this member needs to focus on what they want to do with the rest of their life. And they have time to figure that out. In conclusion then, should we hire an investment adviser? It's a tradeoff between trust and peace of mind. Do you trust the adviser, enough, and will you get enough peace of mind to have an adviser to not have to manage the asset, recognizing nothing can be on autopilot? We have to do the due diligence on the adviser. We have to understand how they're investing. We have to understand the fees and be comfortable that the value delivered by the adviser will be enough to generate the fees. If the fees are under 1%, more likely, if they're higher than that, then that can be a concern. We need to recognize that for any of us, most of our returns will be driven by the asset allocation. Even for this first adviser that we discuss, the return to going to be driven by the asset allocation, the equal weighting of the individual stocks, how much in stocks versus bonds.

"One that has 434,000 is 94% stocks, and about 6% in cash. And this member doesn't like the fact that the cash is there, but that was the highest risk tolerance that Schwab allowed. And here's a key statement from the member as much as I want to be a sophisticated investor. I think my temperament and buy and hold mentality is more suited to buying an index or fewer indices. One of the challenges with the Schwab intelligent portfolios is Schwab was just fined a $180 million by the SEC securities exchange commission for misleading their robo adviser clients about this cash balances. From March 2015 to November 2018, Schwab essentially mandated or had these forced cash allocations in their portfolio. And we talked about this in episode 92 back in 2016 because Schwab doesn't charge a management fee for their robot adviser service. And I speculated at the time because they're using mostly Schwab ETFs that's generating enough revenue and income for them to not charge a management fee on their service. Turns out it wasn't just that. Their process said they used a disciplined portfolio construction methodology that would seek optimal return and they use that to figure out what the cash balance should be. When in fact, Schwab was taking that mandated allocation to cash, and it was the highest cash balance of all the rogue adviser, recommendations that we looked at in episode 92. And they would take that cash to an affiliate bank, Charles Schwab bank, presumably, and full disclosure, I have them on my account to Charles Schwab, both the bank as well as my custody accounts. I don't use their robo adviser service. But they were taking that cash, moving it to the bank and then lending it out. And then they would earn more interest on those loans than they were paying on the cash balance. Here's what the SEC's director of SEC division enforcement said. Gerber S gruel. Schwab claimed that the amount of cash in its robo adviser portfolios was decided by sophisticated economic algorithms meant to optimize its clients returns.

"Member writes, I had high hopes of managing my own money, but I feel stuck. And I think my portfolio is too bloated and complicated for me. I'm also sitting on more cash than I need, but I don't have a clear strategy on where to invest it. Would you advise sitting down with a financial planner? And if so, are you able to recommend someone? This member is 45. The member closed a lifestyle business in 2021 after 14 years, provided great income, but their passion waned. The member rights I was burned out, I decided to walk away, and I'm currently taking time off and not earning any income. I have no plans as of yet for my next endeavor, so it's entirely possible that it will take a few years. And it probably will. This individual spouse is working. Their income there is $80,000, plus there's an additional 27,028 $1000 generated net cash from two rental properties. This individual's situation is very similar to when I left my investment advisory firm ten years ago. I didn't really know what I was going to do. I had enough money to retire if we wanted to cut back our spending, realistically, I knew I wanted to do something and that something needed to generate some income because we didn't necessarily want to cut. Our budget and we were still, we still had children at home. We had education and things of that sort. That's the same in this situation. This member, they have two children, ages 7, and 11. When you quit your job and you're relying on your investments, at least for a portion of their income, it's helpful to know how much those assets are. In this case, by my calculation, this doesn't include the rental unit. There's $2.2 million in taxable assets. About a 188,000 in cash and this member says, I keep it fairly high balance because it helps me sleep at night, especially since I'm not currently earning income. I think that's appropriate. Having a higher cash balance knowing that that's there and we will live on that for the next year or two.

"Continue, let me pause and share some words from this week's sponsors. It's been a challenging year for investing with a stock market down 15% year to date. At one point, the market was down over 20%. Meanwhile, with inflation raging and recession risk rising, how do we survive this financial storm? Diversification. That means building a portfolio with a variety of return drivers, including real assets like art. It's why I've been investing with my friends at masterworks for almost three years. Before inflation was even in the headlines, I was attracted to find art steadiness as a private asset. We can see this in action, even as a stock market had its worst start in 50 years. Art auction sales hit their highest ever first half total. An unbelievable $7.4 billion. Not only that, but masterwork sold a painting just a few weeks ago that I invested in. Even as inflation was running rampant, they still delivered a 9.2% net return from selling a Manet piece, which I think is pretty incredible. Of course, who wouldn't want to capitalize on this momentum? That's why demand is high and masterworks actually has a wait

"Individual securities. The member mentioned that there would be about a 120 individual stocks. Small company stocks, mid cap stocks, and some dividend growth equities. He also mentioned something pretty interesting. The holdings would be equally weighted. So each stock would get the same percentage. And those individual stocks would be part of the core allocation. Now, they're recommended allocation for this retiree is 20% fixed income and roughly 80% non fixed income. That would include the stock allocation, but they have a 15% allocation to the satellite strategies. This firm describes satellite strategies as strategies that deliver a high level of active alpha, excess return. That's derived from skilled, active management, or exotic beta, which would be exposure to risk factors with low correlation to global markets. Examples they give is equity REITs, energy master limited partnerships, commodities, non investment grade bonds, private equity, emerging market securities, and perhaps some interest rate strategies. It could include some more Bond like strategies, but generally it's trying to deliver excess return. When I looked at their brochures, their ADV, I didn't see any information on their research process for picking individual stocks. But when we look at, is it possible that this firm could deliver 1% higher return than this member could do on his or her own? We don't know. One potential way that the firm hopes to generate excess return is by equally waiting the stocks, they're putting a deliberate bias toward small and mid cap stocks. Because the market indices, for example, if you invest in the Vanguard global stock market ETF that has both U.S. and non U.S. stocks or the Vanguard U.S. stock ETF, that's not the official name, but ticker is VTSAX, for example, would be the mutual fund version or a VTI is the ETF version. VT is the global ETF version, but their size weighted. The biggest names have a bigger weight. An investment approach that equal weights just because of the mathematics we'll have a smaller average size or capitalization and then consequently it is small in mid cap, stocks outperform large omega cap stocks over time, then that could generate some excess return. If they don't, then that would be a performance drag.

They have investment assets of $4.5 million, and it's invested in a variety of different mutual funds. Their overall allocation right now is about 27 and a half percent in bonds and cash, and then they have one rental property. And then the rest is spread among different mutual funds. They have some allocation to mostly fidelity funds. They have some non U.S. exposure through an ETF, and they have some Vanguard funds. Their overall expense ratio for their allocation is 0.35%.

"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same time. It's a little bit

So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same

America's Deeply-Rooted Double Standard of Justice
"If you don't really believe that there is a now deeply rooted double standard of justice in this country. Let me give you a couple of cases to compare one against the other. You remember Jacob chansley, the guy with the big feathers and the guy with the ridiculous outfit on January 6th. Now this is a guy who went into the capitol and basically paraded around. No weapons, no assault, no, even implication of violence. He spent 317 days in solitary confinement. And he got 41 months in prison. The DoJ actually wanted more, but that's what the judge gave him. Now, let's compare his case. With the case of another guy, this guy's name is montez teriya Lee. And this is a guy during a George Floyd riot and antifa BLM riot. What did he do? He set fire to a pawn shop. Deliberately. He was an arsonist. And there was a man inside the pawn shop. Named Oscar Lee Stewart, 30 years old, who was torched to death. This guy was burned. And his body was found afterward he obviously inhaled fumes and he suffocated to death. As a result of the actions of this guy montez, teriya Lee. This is the black guy, I'm looking at a picture of him he's kind of holding his hand up in a kind of black power salute outside the pawn shop. He was obviously very proud of himself and what he did, and he was making a defiant gesture outside the pawn shop. Look, I'm the guy who did this. And now I want to read from the Biden DoJ's statement of the judge asking for this guy not to get a typical murder sentence. Not to get a life sentence, not to get a capital murder sentence because the truth of it is if you commit an intentional felony, and in the course of that felony, even though you didn't intend to kill that guy in the commission of the intentional felony you did kill that guy, it becomes a capital offense normally, normally. But for the Biden DoJ, these are let's just say understandable circumstances. And so the Biden DoJ wants 12 years for this guy for this crime, a crime that normally carries life. I want to read from the Biden DoJ's document. They say, mister Lee's a motive for setting the fires of foremost issue. Mister Lee credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence and was, quote, caught up in the fury. Now they say the DoJ as anyone watching the news worldwide knows many other people in Minnesota with similarly caught up, quote there appear also to have been many people who felt angry frustrated and disenfranchised and who were attempting in many cases in an unacceptably reckless and dangerous manner to give voice to those feelings, mister Lee appears to be in that category. And then they go on to say, he appears to have believed that he was, quote, in doctor king's eloquent words. Engaging in, quote, the language of the unheard. Now, Martin Luther King of one point said a riot is the language of the unheard and here you have the Biden DoJ invoking Martin Luther King to make this guy seem like not a nice guy, but someone who sort of got whipped up into a frenzy and we can kind of understand the cause because after all, he was fighting for social justice. And then the judge goes along with this. The guy gets ten years, which when you consider what he did is an absurdly light sentence. Here is the judge. The judge says two mister Lee. And contrast this again with the judges who have been excoriating the January 6th protesters, nonviolent protesters. Oh, you overturning you're trying to overturn election. You're trying to mount a coup. You're endangering our system of government. Here's the judge. Her name is wilhelmina Wright. She says to Li that you are, quote, more than the person who celebrated your actions on social media. You are more than the person who destroyed that business by fire. You are more than the person who set that fire that killed a man. In other words, the real mister Lee is not the guy who did those things. And then the basic idea is this is how she concludes so while there are no excuses for your actions on May 28, 2020, you have a chance to move forward and live a productive life. The judge is actually even though the victim is dead, saying to the perpetrator, you know, I'd like to see you go on. I'd like to see you become a better person. We don't have to judge you entirely about what you did on that day. You were sort of carried away. You were articulating, quote, the language of the unheard. So look at the kind of gentle understanding empathetic way in which the DoJ treats this particular case and then contrast it with the tight lipped glint in your eye anger that judges, including in one or two cases Trump judges have unleashed on protesters who showed up in Washington D.C. on January 6th to simply express their frustration

Limits On Toilet Paper And Cleaning Supplies Are Back At Costco
"Go to costco or your local big box. Perhaps you got toilet paper on your list. Maybe some water cleaning supplies as well. But when you go to load up your car you see the signs that say two per customer or whatever. The limit is not as you might think. Thanks to reprise of the apocalyptic stockpiling early on in this thing. It's a supply chain again. But as marketplace's amanda peach reminds us limits on how much consumers can buy can backfire on retailers. Trying to sell it when there was a run on certain products in pandemic early days. The explanation was simple. Basically consumers freaked out. Ken boyer studies operations management at ohio state university and people heard. There's gonna be a shortage so they went to buy more but shortages now are much more about shipping delays and other supply chain constraints boyer says take toilet paper even if it's manufactured in the us the chemicals to make it might come from china or thailand. They're sitting on a boat. Offshore that becomes a delayed the toilet paper manufacturers sometimes. The shortage is in packaging or containers like cans for soda or bottles for water in melbourne. Florida alley strands. Saw a sign at the grocery store. At limiting the number of cases of water customers could purchase to to literally. My first thought was hurting. Strands checked her phone. No hurricane warnings so she thought what's going on with bottled water. She bought two cases and had her son. Do the same. You drink the bottle of water. But he was getting his shopping part for me. Because is there going to be a run on water. And that's why stores have to be careful about signaling. Shortages with product limits on we realize goods are scarce. They become more valuable to us. Care me. Burke is a behavioral economist with the university of southern california. I might not new toy right now. But i know toilet. Paper is scarce. So i may go stock up on it as much as i can at the moment. In burke says that unnecessary purchasing can add pressure to supply chains at exactly the wrong time. I'm amanda pitcher for
