We focus on the critical issue of supply shock - drilling in on the semi-conductor market. We then explore the technical aspects of the broader supply chain – asking questions such as: what is it? What operations contribute to it? How will the 4th industrial revolution of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, robotics, automation, and smart apps potentially disrupt both how supply chain is executed and labour markets that support it.

Jigsaw’s September report will be of high interest to those who want to review the industries which are likely to reward you with fiscal security.

To do this, we have analysed the US economy from 1970 to date. We hope you enjoy the content.
