You caught me by surprise with that headline. Good article overall with one exception. You've probably read in WSJ and other places that the US is pretty much on "just in time" logistics. It simply ain't true. Most of industry doesn't even quite know what "just in time" is (Hint: It's NOT simply low inventories. In fact, "just in time" mandates of suppliers by OEMS most often leads to INCREASES in inventories.) much less practice it.

And when you claim that "large inventories will undoubtedly sell"....well, that just ain't true either. For lots of reasons. Inventory goes bad, becomes obsolete, gets superseded by new products, was made badly and nobody knows it yet, gets damaged, and on and on.

But...good article overall.
