How many Etsy and EBay mom and pops are scrambling due to China's coronavirus

I get ceramics from a big city that's being affected. They are used to make $500 products! In the states they cost 8x as much plus an expensive fireproof mold that costs thousands to design and manufacture.

How many tens of thousands of vital little businesses are there that can't get their raw materials right now - tens of thousands of family businesses that could be shut down! Self employed people don't collect unemployment either!

Are you one of those folks that could be affected? What are you doing to regroup?

regroup?
I have created a life where I am not dependent upon Chinese products.
Do I use them? Sure. If China shuts down will I get by - absolutely.
Most of Amazon products are shipped from China.
If they shut down shipping to and from China like they are considering, it will be a HUGE catastrophe to North America.
Funny how "Democratic" nations (yes yes, I know the USA is a Republic officially) have allowed themselves to be ultra dependent on a Communist nation like China.
China is now the number 1 consumer nation in the world. They don't need the US. But the US will go on melt-down mode (Canada too) if China stopped shipping products. It would be anarchy in a matter of days.

Thank you for bringing this home for us. Your last paragraph says it better than I've seen anywhere.

Maybe AOC was doing us a favor?
