                                The Perils of Efficiency: One of the Nation's most economically vital systems, the iron mining - integrated steel production - manufacturing supply chain is potentially one of the least resilient to disruption. The Poe Lock at the Soo Locks connecting Lakes Huron and Superior is a potential single point of failure in this supply chain. An unexpected 6-month closure of the locks would have devastating consequences for industries dependent on this supply chain, particularly the automobile manufacturing industry, and the National economy.
