9:30 am
we leave the program with an economic story that has been hogging headlines and recent weeks. supply chain issues continue to hamstring. the bible administration, in fact, concerns over how to get more supplies off barges and into ports is such a problem that president biden is now considering using the national guard to help resolve the bottlenecks, 9 of cnn town hall, the president said he would consider using the national guard to move products in order to increase the number of truckers on the rope. so let's go further in depth on what is happening with the supply chain ball next week. boom, less co host, ben swan and christy i. ben, let's start with you here. so what about this plan to use the national guard? i mean, is this something new and profound? you think it will happen and of course would help relieve some of these supply chain issues? well that's, and i think at this point, so many people are thinking, anything's better than what we have right now. right? but the truth is, the national guard plan is actually not a good plan at all. and it wouldn't really work. it would simply be done for optics
9:31 am
if anything. and the reason for that is consider the fact that number one, when we're talking about all of these shipping containers that are at the port of long beach in the port of los angeles. right. and there's some, 2000000 of them that are in the ocean offshore, waiting to bring those those, you know, shipping containers into the port. the problem is getting those products out of the port requires truck drivers. so the, by the ministration says that we use national guard, but there's a national guard or not full time soldiers, which means that if you're in the national guard, you have a day job of some kind. so for the most part, anyone who has a truck driver license can operate a big rig is already doing that as part of being in the national guard, which means they're already already employ number one. number 2, a lot of the companies that are doing the shipping and bringing these products out, or working for specific companies that need them at wal mart, for instance, right? wal mart has its own trucking fleet that it's sending in to get these products out . so the idea that you're going to now bring in national guard, which somehow create
9:32 am
a whole new set of truck drivers. not really going to happen last week. there are 60000 truck driving jobs available in the united states right now that are going unfilled. which means that we have a shortage of truck drivers that you can't just invent out of out of mid air. so there's a number of problems here at the national guard thing. sounds like a solution, but it just impracticality. it's not, it would also be interesting to see as we see the labor shortage. their head across the industry is what people would say when they're like, took care of that one, but you didn't take care of this with the national guard, very interesting. they're kristi, you're in l. a. where these jammed up ports are located. reports indicate that since the port of los angeles in long beach port have begin operating 24 hours a day, it's making traffic and nightmare and surrounding neighborhoods. now we know traffic and lay that's unprecedented. what can you tell us about this? yeah, it's an absolute nightmare. by the ports right now in the city of wilmington, the neighborhoods are over run by truck traffic as a result of the limited container storage. and usually most of these trucks leave
9:33 am
very early in the morning or very late in the evening when there is no traffic. but now these trucks are kind of piling in with all the daily work commuters, as a result of these 247 ships. so it's really taking a toll on the surrounding neighborhood. and as of tuesday there were $63.00 ships burst at the 2 ports and $96.00 waiting to dock to unload, which is absolute insanity as really taking a toll on american businesses who import. so my best friend who runs a fashion label and imports fabrics and patterns and apparel, she just told me that right now it's pretty much impossible to import. she can even calculate the l. d p. the landed, dewey paid prices and costs right now because the last container she received, the initial freight costs was $2500.00. not bad, but then it ended up being 10 x that landed because the container was actually floating at the l. a port for months longer than expected. so it really makes doing business. absolutely impossible. and unfortunately, most retailers have built out supply chains and manufacturing partners overseas. so
9:34 am
it's not like they can switch manufacturing somewhere else, even if you decide not to manufacture in china. you still go to thailand and you're still going to have the same problem because the bottlenecks is on the u. s. side. not anywhere else, and you will still need to import it over. and it's very similar to what we've seen with the semiconductor shortage. obviously that's not a shipping issue, but the fact is that you've become to rely on one side that you're really in a position where just trying to wrap up production quickly isn't going to help anything right now. now, bad reports indicate that some retailers are now over ordering in order to make up for lack of products, and that is creating an even bigger problem. tell us about that. yeah, i mean, there are apparently a number of retailers who are doing that. they are over ordering, it's starting to cause even more problems, more strain on the supply chain. but, but the reality is like, this is the part of the story. the guy doesn't make any sense to me. so the 4 los angeles is clogged up, the port at long beach is clogged up. 40 percent of all important goods into the
9:35 am
united states. come to those 2 ports, but no one is asking why. why are they just moving to other ports in other locations? there are other must co sports. there are reports in the gulf of mexico. there are ports in florida. there a port in louisiana. why not move, and i know in some cases amazon for instance, on products that it's dealing with are, is moving though, shipping those ships away from the port of los angeles and moving them to other locations. it may take a couple of days to get there, but here's the reality. at least you're not sitting in the ocean for months at a time, and that's how long some of the shipping containers have been sitting there for months waiting to come in. so the idea that with this can't be done, or that it, you know, can only happen through the port of los angeles, which by the way, port of los angeles just moved to a 24 hour shift and a, the port of long beach. just a couple of weeks ago moved to a 24 hour shift. but in the state of florida, the the governor in florida rhonda said, has just held a press conference in which he said that every single port in florida already
9:36 am
operates 24 hours a day. that's how florida does it. as opposed to california sit in the ship someplace else, rather than continuing to wait to funnel them through just these 2 ports. and it seems like there's definitely more questions than answers at least in the situation . now, christy, how much it is that like a bottleneck is because of the reopening in the economy, the case has actually been made by transportation. secretary been dead that the economy began recovering too quickly. what are your thoughts on that? it's not as absolutely no quick fix to any of this, and it certainly isn't because the economy would cover too quickly and i love how politicians kind of dismiss a problem by making it sound like something's too good. if i saying, oh, we know there's a lot of obesity in the nation right now, but that's only because we have too much good food and nutrition here. so now the real problem is the u. s. is the long beach ports and the southern california los angeles port handled the most ocean cargo of any ports in the us, but they are some of the least efficient in the world according to
9:37 am
a ranking by the world bank america. the purchase of imported goods have jumped to levels that the u. s. supply chain infrastructure just can't handle this in contrast with other ports like japan and china. in fact, if we actually take what the transportation secretary said as truth, let's pretend it's the truth for a minute. if in fact the recovery caused supply chain bottlenecks, then china should be experiencing the same congestion and the same bottlenecks because china had recovered faster from cove it and had a sharper v like bout. so according to his logic, china, congestion should be even worse than that of the u. s. but china does it because they have the infrastructure. and while not in the most efficient category, 3 of china's biggest ports are ranked among the top 5 in the same survey. so there's really no quick fix as the union pacific rail executive said that while making the port operational 247 will help incrementally. this is a long term problem. and so far this hasn't even made a dent in it. yeah, you gotta leave it to politicians. it's been
9:38 am
a story to say that it's because we're just doing too well. that's why we're having these unprecedented issues. boom. bends on. and kristi, i thank you so much for your insight. the while the markets are mix this week as investors continue to keep an eye on the state of rising inflation and the ongoing supply chain constraints. we start in russia where the mo, x is down roughly 1.5 percent for the weak rocha's central bank increase interest rates on friday by $75.00 basis points to 7.5 percent. this was the 6 the increase since the start of the year. signaling more action is possible, as the nation deals with the highest inflation rate since 2016, some of that to keep an eye on in moscow, the chairman of the supervisory board of the mo x says the index expects for major ip before the end of 2021. moving to asian markets, the shanghai composite in the green this week up just under a half

9:52 am
t correspondent fair in fraud, zach herself. now, in the fair and when we're looking at, i mean, not figure millennials doubling their dad just in last few years. what are some of the contributing factors there? you know, it's so funny because everybody says kobe, but color really was one of the reasons. but also, you know, you have millennials like myself, like the rest of us here on the said, you know, we want to buy a house. we want to have a baby, we want to get married, that costs money. it's not free anymore, or the or a lot of times, you know, kids would rely on their parents. their parents can't do it because you see baby boomers, they're in debt to. so it's one of these things where they took a personal loans or, you know, they went to the bank and try to, you know, again with, with all these loans and that's why a lot of it completely doubled, especially for that millennial generation. because there go going into that new stream of adulthood buying your 1st home, having your 1st child. so that's why millennials really, you know, double that well, and we've seen so many young people in this country flocked to big cities. it's something that we've seen over the years and i was having this conversation with
9:53 am
a friend recently there. like why did it feel like our parents that you know, 22. they were able to have a kid, have a house and all that worked out for him. was like, because our parents live in the same city. we grew up in exactly the same city. they grew up and we all kind of flocked to major metropolitan areas. and that's what we're seeing today. absolutely. and you know, the other thing that we're seeing too is i remember my grandfather, you know, he was the, he was, the breadwinner of the family, worked for proctor and gamble. my grandma state home had 4 kids. they had a car, they all went to school. you don't see that anymore. you see the generation of both parents have to work. child care is nearly doubled in the last 20 years and you're seeing just the price of everything go up. but the wages have stayed the same and that's the problem. they haven't moved since the $190.00 or at least minimum wage has moved since around the 1970 s. right, and that's an excellent point and i feel like it seems to be so much more common. you just put everything on the credit card. take out a loan for this and that, and when you're talking about making the same amount of money and i know we cover
9:54 am
the skyrocketing prices here and boom, bust all the time, which is that everything is more expensive to buy. you're expected to kind of go in those entry level job at the exact same rate and it takes you that much longer to actually get to the point where you're getting somewhere where you're getting where your parents were getting you know, to decade before you. exactly. and you know, i don't want to myself here, but i graduated college in 2009. ok. i remember going in in 2005 and the banks just lined up saying get a credit card, get a credit card and we were like, oh my gosh, all this money on it. and that's why millennials, they have the most credit card debt, and that's what we're seeing today, and it's going to take a long time to pay that off will. absolutely. and one point before we do go, i do want a point is that south koreans are actually say, this is incredibly relevant to them. this is an actual problem that goes on in their country as they have seen, a bankruptcy of skyrocket. since the start of the pandemic over the last several years, so it's definitely big deal hard, corresponded fair project. thank you so much for the delay. and finally,
