THE U.S. MERCHANT MARINE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE SYSTEM

An extensive study on the liner segment of oceanborne shipping which examines three national maritime policy alternatives and projects their probable impact on American-flag operators in the Nation's foreign trade over the next 10 years. The options considered are that (1) the status quo be maintained, (2) the policy be modified to encourage more competition among merchant fleets of the world, or (3) the policy be changed to permit greater cooperation between American and other national flags carrying general cargoes.
