Who run Bartertown?

Truckers planning to refuse loads going to NYC.

Not sure if enough will follow through for it to have a significant effect.
But, prices for everything are determined at the margins: how much someone is willing to pay for the last one…

It is going to be one hell of an election year.

That was superb.

There was his bit about “some trucker on TikTok” that the blob wasn’t prepared to handle.
How appropriate to the thread.

Many people who are essential parts of the blob got named.
Time for the internet to get aimed back at them.

They need to be branded with a term which is “sticky” and evokes a strong reaction.
I propose branding those people: “domestic enemies of the Constitution.”

(Perhaps a little doxxing may be in order, too…)

Making a supposition that NYC proper has such little storage space at businesses that they might be at the mercy of needing multiple small deliveries through their daily cycle. Do they operate on lots of "just in time" deliveries? I wonder if OTR truckers would even have to go in that far, to the city proper, to have an impact. Stop feeding the distribution warehouse for a time, like bypassing islands in the Pacific. Never been to NYC, let alone run a biz there, so not sure.

NYC runs efficiently due to small business owners. Every large corporations use the local network to fulfill the needs of its employees, breakfast is the corner bodega, lunch is the food truck at 48th&6th, dinner is the search for the best $25 pasta deal with a portion. All of the infrastructure to feed the working public is resupplied daily.

The markets, housed in the bronx used to be spread all over the city, now centralized they are easily held hostage to unions, city inspectors, and now truckers. imho, having operated in NYC for years, the supply chain is 30 days for meat, 3/4 for fish, 3 for produce, dairy milk 7, cream 21, butter 30.

Dry goods 60/90
