1. This take on the toilet paper shortage looks at it from a different angle – not one of panic buying or hoarding. Instead it delves into consumer vs commercial demand and how that balanced is out of whack and tipped heavily towards consumer demand. In simple terms, you’re not going to the toilet more you’re just going more at home which means you need more at home. It’s not only affecting toilet paper supplies but many others where consumer demand is suddenly much higher than commercial. This same theory can be applied to the flour and yeast shortage – it’s not hoarding. It’s simply that more people are baking at home instead of relying on bakeries and eating out; and supply chains have yet to fully adapt to the change in demand.  [Medium]
