The term "pragmatism," as used here with reference to competition in liner shipping, is based on two elements. The first is a rigorous distinction between real principles and currently expedient positions. The second is the willingness to allow change and evolution in the practical application of even the strictest principles. The author does not claim that the concept of pragmatic competition is either new or revolutionary, but hopes that this discussion of the issues involved will spur policy makers into more careful deliberations on those issues.
