I am in the chemical industry and we try to be the opposite of just in time. When prices drop we buy healthy amounts of raw materials. If there is the POSSIBILITY of a shortage, we stock up.

It is CRAZY how much these Trump supporters are getting duped, grifted, and fucked over by their own team, and even after having to go through their banks to get their money back, are still on team Trump. Read more
