Current Events Case Discussion
Between 2016 and 2020 several events happened that called into question the globalization of the supply chain, such as trade wars, nationalization movements, such as Brexit, the policy changes of the Trump administration, and the COVID-19 outbreak of 2019 and 2020. Many popular news sources have interviewed locals on the impacts of these events, chronicled decisions of policy makers, and tracked economic changes. Your task in this exploration is to consider one of these events and the impact it had on the global supply chain.
For your initial post please consider the following:
How did this global event impact the global supply chain?
If you had been a business owner during this time, would you have changed your global manufacturing supply chain? Why or why not?
Your initial post should be between 300 and 500 words.
You need to research for this assignment. All source material must be cited and cited using APA citations (this is the standard for the business discipline; if you are unfamiliar with how to cite or how to cite using APA, please see the information in the optional Credo Information Literacy module under the Modules tab).
Discussion forums will be conducted in a post-first format. This means that you will not be able to view other posts until you have posted your own original response. Please note that you are also unable to edit or delete posts once they have been shared with the class.
All initial entries should be posted no later than 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday of this week.
