“Very, very high level of supply chain issues, which in the long-term it's not a permanent problem — you can fix it,” Deshmukh, an assistant professor – educator in the  Carl H. Lindner College of Business, said. “Given enough time things will adjust.”

In the meantime, Deshmukh encouraged people to buckle down with their budgets.

“Just stay moderate, and as you rightly suggested, weather the storm of high prices,” Deshmukh said. "We hope that most of these price changes, or price hikes, which are caused by supply chain issues, or just the logistics parts of it are sorted out really soon and we get some relief there.”
