This chapter advances ideas about macro and micro-studies on the economics of Finnish shipping. It emphasises the difficulties in attaining and measuring accurate data within incomplete accounts, and discusses the national accounting and business economics concerns of Finnish shipping companies by assessing reports of labour costs, wages, depreciation, gross revenue, capital costs and profitability.
