Is friend shoring like friend zoning?

and what would nearshoring be for the United States? South America or Europe aren’t near, and Mexico and Canada don’t have a shore facing us.

I actually have a team in Costa Rica that we refer to as the ‘nearshore’ team, but I’m guessing it’s not a big manufacturing source
biden's in south korea today talking supply chains , semiconductors , and compatible values

I couldn't blame the coming correction on Uncle Joe, this has been building for years and while this may not be the beginning of the bubble bursting, yet, I think it's inevitable in the next 12 months.
I was a few months off, so nothing I say here should be taken seriously from this point out.

That's assuming it was being taken seriously anyway.

You were calling an S&P 2500 over a year ago. Since then we've had some little things like a large land war in Europe, etc. I'm just saying that I can start calling S&P 5k and at some point I'll be correct.

I'm not calling out anyone here cause I haven't been on chain long enough.

But I have a similar friend on aforementioned discord chain.

Dude has been calling market collapse for half a decade and right now is trying to preen.

Unless you can call it with some proximity it not even a prediction.

Most of the Doomberg types are the same.

Saw some commentary drawing parallels between the current NASDAQ plunge and the dot-com crash of the early 2000s. Not valid in my view. Among today's notable losers are huge and hugely profitable companies such as MSFT and GOOG. In contrast, many of the dot-com bubble stocks were cash incinerators with outlandish valuations and dim prospects of ever becoming profitable. A significant number should never have gone public to begin with. As the body count rose a Website with the inelegant name FuckedCompany kept track of the carnage. I had a friend and co-worker who quit to join a firm that eventually wound up on that honor roll.

Those guys drive me up a wall. If something finally happens after you've spent ten years saying it's imminent, you don't get credit for being a prophet. Timing counts.
the only thing that counts is roi for time .

FuckedCompany was some peak schadenfreude.
