Wow! It is almost difficult to believe that supply chains are so short that an earthquake in Japan would stop production of a car in the United States 10 days later.

General Motors Co. says it suspended production at its Shreveport, La., plant for the week of March 21 because of a parts shortage stemming from last week’s earthquake in Japan. Damage to parts suppliers and transportation networks in Japan have brought that country’s auto industry to a halt.
