An analytical inventory of economic forecasts and forecasting parameters developed outside the maritime industry is provided together with a systematic method for relating this economic information to historical trends in U.S. marine transportation. A sample forecast of the U.S. foreign trade pattern is developed for 1970 and 1985.
