PROBLEMS OF MAINTAINING AN AMERICAN MERCHANT MARINE

In conjunction with a separate report entitled "Draft Report on Maritime Subsidy" (Jan. 30, 1963), this report assesses the problem of maintaining an American Merchant Marine. A tentative set of specifications for any new system is outlined, followed by a tentative application of those specifications to the Incentive Charter System. Four other major topics are discussed in separate appendices: cargo preference, labor management relations, the nature of the U.S. owned foreign flag fleet, and the legal issues involved in the so-called "flag of convenience cases" before the Supreme Court. The material is all in draft form without editorial integration.
