It is enough that a single piece of the global supply chain is blocked for the whole system to enter into crisis. In Italy we are little worried about this phenomenon, and we leave it to others to deal with it. We are wrong . 

The problem is not solved by disassembling the supply chains to bring them back home, that is, by preferring localization to globalization. This policy of  re-shoring  - bringing home - is the wrong answer to an obvious problem that many have long ignored. The reaction is understandable, but it will not prove effective. 

  • It could have negative consequences for the entire globe, such as the spread of social crises on a global scale, and a consequent negative impact on sustainability and global warming.
