Ghost Fleets and Protectionism


globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com< br />

The biggest and most secretive gathering of ships in maritime history lies at anchor east of Singapore. Never before photographed, it is bigger than the U.S. and British navies combined but has no crew, no cargo and no destination - and is why your Christmas stocking may be on the light side this year.

Wow this is pretty amazing. Looks like we still are not out of our global recession. All those ships just sitting there speaks volumes about how the business just isn't there anymore.

I wonder how this is going to affect shortages and prices in the future when we begin run out of goods.

not good.

I've heard of rail yards looking the same way! Just full of empty (and full) cargo haulers waiting for freight. (Not FEMA shackle cars, lol!)

What is worse, is that all this sitting merchandise has not caused a decrease in price like it should have! Retailers are stubbornly sticking to their unrealistic profit objectives, and laying off employees instead of lowering prices! That has the opposite effect, and the economy continues to spiral!

This story is really amazing, it almost sounds like science fiction somehow. I can't imagine an entire fleet of these huge ships just floating aimlessly off the coast of this town. And the locals have no idea why the ships are there, it must seem really creepy.

Does anyone think we could use Google Earth to find other places like this?

This is a good topic with many angles to think and write about:

Americans have been the consumers of the world for decades and now it's ending quickly; as a result, the world economy will continue to shrink, and with steady human population growth, especially in Third World countries (mostly slave labor countries), it translates into fewer jobs with more people globally. Basically a recipe for disaster everywhere on the planet.

Environmentally, it's a good thing, with less boats, trains, trucks, and planes spewing out less carbon and toxins. Less factories dumping less waste and material and consuming less resources.

Basically, if human population globally was to sharply decline it wouldn't seem too bad but in reality it's the opposite.

By the way, I read that birth defects are rising sharply in China. No surprise there as many in the scientific realm have been saying recently that China is unsustainable environmentally and that they will be experiencing catastrophic repercussions for their people and wildlife due to the destruction of the ecosystem (which eventually spreads around the world in time). Basically you can pollute your house only to a degree before it comes back and sickens and kills you.

This may be a good time to finally remove the "go forth and multiply" statement from the Bibles. Predictably, of course, the religious will still try to have their litters regardless of what happens
