TRADE OUTLOOK OF THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PORTS: YEAR 2000 AND BEYOND
The study is an analysis of the economic, political and technical forces that influence the development of ocean-borne trade and provide the basis for projections of various categories of dry cargo tonnages. The analysis indicated the relationship of world trade, United States trade, Pacific Coast trade, and the ocean-borne trade that passes through the ports of Northern California and the Golden Gate of San Francisco Bay. The projections made include prediction intervals to encompass variable forces that might operate in the future. Color illustrations reproduced in black and white.
