This essay outlines the evolution of the Greek migrant market during the boom years of transatlantic migration from the eastern Mediterranean, the 1890s to the 1920s. It aims to define the various approaches to competition amongst migrant firms operating in the Greek migrant market. It places the market both in regional and continental contexts; determines the opportunities for transatlantic migration from Greece; explores the importance of Greek emigrants to the French shipping industry; provides reasons for the establishment of an Austro-American shipping route; and discusses international and regional competition through fare increases, advertising campaigns, and economic patriotism. It concludes that competition amongst migrant shipping companies was both a key feature of the history of transatlantic migration, and a particularly antagonistic practice within the Greek migrant market.
