We just put up a new wood fence around our yard. Yesterday oru fence guy, Heath, came by for a final walk through and payment. He told us that we got it done just in time as new tariffs on Canada, will skyrocket the price of wood.
This will effect a lot more than just fencing contractors. It will increase construction costs of new housing, the price of furniture, and anything else made of wood or from wood, such as paper too.
If peopelcan't afford to buy stuff, then it doesn't sell and peopel get laid off, which means even fewer peopel cn afford to buy stuff and, well you can see how this coudl create a cycle into another great depression.
OR people could take advantage of the new hemp laws and start using hempcrete to build fireproof, mold-proof homes, make paper, plastics, clothing, use 3-D printing with hemp powder to make furniture. Then people will maybe stop clear-cutting virgin timber and leave the land in peace.
