The 12 year disconnect many seem to have missed. Somehow?

I think that the Treasury cannot print any more money and purchase the Government bonds as it was done for the past two decades. The higher interest rates would lead to higher budget deficit in order to pay much higher interest for that Debt.

The shipments came in late, and now nobody wants these products?

It seemed I lived at Home Depot, Lowes and City Mill for 2 years during two remodels. I recall lots of stuff in the aisles even then. It's probably worse now, but, fortunately, I've not needed to go there very often. Last time we went to HD was to buy some tile wax. That was several months ago. Even then, there were boxes in the aisles. YMMV
