Abstract

This chapter assesses the effects of worldwide supply chain disruptions, focusing on the role of the U.S. monetary policy as a catalyst that contributed to the shift of consumer demand from its pre-COVID-19 equilibrium. It analyses how stimulus payments and quantitative easing facilitated labour shortages in supply chain operations and how the growing demand increased the magnitude of shortages, followed by a bullwhip effect in orders from retailers. The study argues that the economic equilibrium between supply and demand for goods that has been greatly affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 has also been affected by substantial monetary changes that have further increased the scope of supply chain disruptions due to their inflationary effects.
