Now we get to to run a mini-test of this idea. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan will likely disrupt some manufacturing. I have not seen much discussion of this, but here is Ms Megan McArdle of The Atlantic, talking about it.
The auto industry looks to be affected, with supplies potentially disrupted for several months. Memory chip prices may rise as the quake seems to have damaged some production runs.I am hoping my meds come from the US and not from Japan or are not transshipped through Japan.
