Pressestimmen

'This is a splendid book, well illustrated, with plenty of technical explanation as to the hardware employed by this fascinating industry. It deserves to be at the elbow of all those who pretend to any knowledge of the amazing maritime world we cheerfully inhabit.' - Michael Grey, Lloyd's List Maritime Economics is an exceptionally well-written overview of the international shipping industry. - CHOICE

Synopsis

For 5000 years shipping has served the world economy and today it provides a sophisticated transport service to every part of the globe. Yet despite its economic complexity, shipping retains much of the competitive cut and thrust of the 'perfect' market of classical economics. This blend of sophisticated logistics and larger than life entrepreneurs makes it a unique case study of classical economics in a modern setting. The enlarged and substantially rewritten "Maritime Economics" uses historical and theoretical analysis as the framework for a practical explanation of how shipping works today.Whilst retaining the structure of the second edition, its scope is widened to include: lessons from 5000 years of commercial shipping history; shipping cycles back to 1741, with a year by year commentary; updated chapters on markets, shipping costs, accounts, ship finance and a new chapter on the return on capital; new chapters on the geography of sea trade, trade theory and specialised cargoes; updated chapters on the merchant fleet shipbuilding, recycling and the regulatory regime; and, a much revised chapter on the challenges and pitfalls of forecasting.With over 800 pages, 200 illustrations, maps, technical drawings and tables "Maritime Economics" is the shipping industry's most comprehensive text and reference source, whilst remaining as one reviewer put it 'a very readable book'.

Martin Stopford has enjoyed a distinguished career in the shipping industry as Director of Business Development with British Shipbuilders, Global Shipping Economist with the Chase Manhattan Bank N.A., Chief Executive of Lloyds Maritime Information Services; Managing Director of Clarkson Research Services and an executive Director of Clarksons PLC. He lectures regularly at Cambridge Academy of Transport and is a Visiting Professor at Cass Business School, Dalian Maritime University and Copenhagen Business School.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Die Schifffahrt von ihren Ursprüngen bis in die heutige Zeit war immer ein sehr bedeutender Wirtschaftszweig. Wer sich mit dieser Materie intensiver befassen will, kommt um "Maritime Economics" von Martin Stopford nicht herum. Von historischen Aspekten über technische Details bis hin zur Struktur der maritimen Wirtschaft heute werden alle Facetten des Themas kenntnisreich und umfassend abgehandelt. Die jüngsten Entwicklungen an den Märkten seit der Finanzkrise sind in der dritten Auflage naturgemäß noch nicht enthalten, aber gleichwohl vermittelt das Buch einen guten, kompakten Überblick über das Geschehen an den Schifffahrtsmärkten und über die relevanten Einflussfaktoren in den einzelnen Marktsegmenten bis hin zu Finanzierungsfragen oder technischen Besonderheiten bestimmter Schiffstypen. Ein besonderer Vorteil des Buches ist sicherlich der umfassende Blick des Autors auf sein Sujet. Er ist niemals nur Banker, nur Reeder oder nur Ingenieur, sondern vernetzt die Beiträge der unterschiedlichen Fachgebiete zu einem facettenreichen, ausgewogenen und vor allem sehr informativen Gesamtbild.

For me as an insurance specialist the book provided additional value.
I learned a lot about boats and how the business is related to global economy.

One of THE best if not THE best book on Maritime Economics from a Macro perspective 12. Oktober 2009
Von Yoda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book provides an excellent macro economic view of the shipping tranportation business. The reason is the author's authoritative knowledge of the field. He has has over 30 years of experience in the field in both the private sector (as an Economist specializing in the field with Chase Manhattan Bank, Chief Executive of Lloyd's Maritme Information Services, Directof of Business Development with British Shipbuilders and an Executive Director of Clarkson's PLC) and academia (as a Professor at Cass Business School, the Cambridge Academy of Transport, Dalian Maritime University and Copenhage Business School).

The book starts out with a historical overview of the shipping industry (lengthier than the 2nd edition of this book) then presents chapters on the organization of the shipping market, shipping market cycles, shipping markets by different categories of vessel (and the cargoes they handle), financial flows, industry financing and insurance, risk, geographic markets, the markets for ships (both new and second hand) as well as for vessels for scrapping, and legal and regulatory structures. All of these are covered very well and provide an excellent overview through 2007 (i.e., just before the shipping bust of 2008). It should be stressed that the book is intended to provide a macro view of the industry as opposed to a micro view (i.e., discussing how vessels are run on a day to day basis). For a good overview of how ships are run on a day to day basis Kendall's "The Business of Shipping" is highly recommended. That book gives an excellent overview of bunkering, how cargoes are handled, manifests, etc. Hence it is an excellent supplement to Stopford's Maritime Economics. Last but not least, Maritime Economics presents many facts that are very difficult to research and find data on as data sources in the shipping industry, unlike most industries, is not that readily available. This is due to the fact that the industry is characterized by privately held companies. Examples of such research includes tables showing breakdowns of vessel costs by labor, fuel, capital costs, etc., depreciation tables, etc. Much of this data is for particular classes of vessel (i.e., panamax cargo vessels, cape tankers, etc.). This information is very difficult to find elsewhere without an large expenditure of money for purchase.

The 2nd Ed. of Maritime Economics (as of October 2009) is still in print and is being sold at about $20 less than this edition. Despite the price differential the 3rd edition is still worth the money. This is so for a number of reasons. One (and the most important) is the fact that it contains data through 2007 (as opposed to the last that only goes through the mid-1990s). In addition, the chapters are expanded over the previous editions and many of the factual tables referred to above (i.e., on cost breakdowns and depreciation schedules) are not available in the previous edition. The extra $20 is well worth any of these. The only weakness of the book is that it is particularly weak with respect to the labour market in this industry.

All and all this book is an excellent introduction to the industry as well as a veritable treasure chest of information, even for those with considerable knowledge in the industry. As a result it is highly recommended for both the student and those with some knowledge of the industry (though, obviously, the former would find it much more beneficial).

If you are in financial analysis/research...this is THE book for you 25. September 2011
Von Susan Tainter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As background, I work in finance, specifically equity research and money management
In an attempt to get away from the typical Wall Street drivel, I bought three books on shipping
This is by far the best comprehensive book.
It covers the actual aspects of operating a ship (always important when understanding an industry)
But it covers the economics of a ship owner, some macro analysis on trade and a great section on maritime history
More importantly, it review the history of shipping cycles
Thus is book gives investors all the tools to evaluate the shipping sector for potential investments
If nothing else, buy this book first, read it, then see what else you need to learn

Only criticism is that the 2008-2011 boom collapse is not really covered in this edition (2009 edition but really only has data up to 2007) which is understandable, but an analysis of the current extreme boom and subsequent bust would be helpful

The Definitive, One-Volume Study of Maritime Economics 23. Februar 2010
Von Odysseus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Quite simply, I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful tome! It far surpasses any other current study in the field of Maritime Economics (i.e. the shipping industry). Specific chapters cover virtually every conceivable aspect of the field, from history and technology to finance and business cycles. Well written, magnificently thorough, and very engaging, Stopford's classic study (now in its third edition) is a standard-unto-itself -- a decidedly rare achievement for a book in ANY field. Expensive, yes, but absolutely worth the price! A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A beast 28. Dezember 2013
Von P. Troutman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The first thing to note about this book is its physical presence. This book is heavy --- as in when I slipped it into my luggage at the last minute before a flight I had to take it out and carry it with me because it put me over the limit. This book is an argument for ebooks.

i read this book from the point of view of someone who knows nothing about the field but wanted a thorough introduction. For that purpose, it was perhaps less than ideal. The book loses the forest for the trees, bombarding the reader with statistics that you're not going to remember in five minutes anyway. There are a number of graphs that condense data to a more memorable format, but still, the major issues get buried and you'll have to keep stepping back and asking what the big picture is. (Each chapter has a summary, but ---no surprise --- there is no conclusion.)

Also, this book is economics from the point of view of a powerful player in the field, either a shipowner, a major corporation or a shipbuilder. As such, it is very much open to leftist critiques of mainstream economics that it's simply the information necessary for moneyed interests to assert themselves and doesn't actually try to explain with much depth. References to labor issues could be condensed down to maybe five pages (out of 743). The environmental impacts of such intensive global travel or the political impacts of such trade receive nary a word. Again, the bigger picture is slighted.

A number of readers probably couldn't care less about those concerns and will (per the other reviewers) find it helpful for grasping the nuts and bolts of merchant shipping from a shippers' perspective. They will, however, still might object to the redundancy of the book. The same issue tends to get exhaustively covered from several similar angles, and the reader has to be on their toes to remember exactly what was said previously to appreciate how things are different and the implications of those changes.
