The author reflects on the inflexible conditions of business logistics infrastructures in Great Britain and the U.S. He notes the damaged crane at the port of Southampton that triggered a month-long crisis, prompting a closer examination of the nation's other ports. The author also reports that backlash against foreign investments in U.S. infrastructure mobilized the country's second-largest union to urge that state pension funds be used to invest in domestic infrastructure.
