He walks through the latest in the supply chain issues, from steel to AI and how these factors add to the growing uncertainty in the economy. Reid also discusses the differences in administration economic oversight between Trump, Biden and even the Greek rulers. He also wades into how China impacts all of the world, from regulation, production and competition.
