Containers

Have been re-lisenting to this 8-part audio documentary about how global trade has transformed the economy.

It is very much a story for the moment we find ourselves in now as the stories told throughout the series shed light on the fragility of global trade and our supply chain — efficiency optimizations at the expense of resilience, local/global tensions, etc.

What I also found interesting and had forgotten about is how the container shipping industry (and thus globalization) was massively accelerated by the Vietnam War. We are seeing the same type shock happening with many technologies and markets today.
