Fukushima Open Thread
Posted by nate hagens on March 28, 2011 - 10:06am
The situation at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant continues to evolve amidst retracted reports of higher radiation readings near the plant. Many of the basic good stores remain closed in the area. There are also significant manufacturing plant closures throughout Japan. In a heavily interconnected global economic system, there may be domino effects in other countries, such as idling of European auto plants and component delays for semi-conductor/computer equipment.
Please use this as an open thread for links, analysis and news regarding the Japanese nuclear situation - (of particular interest to me are the supply chain implications - if any TODer has knowledge/expertise in that area).
