British Shipping and World Competition

S.G. Sturmey

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the changing methods of state intervention in maritime nations - particularly Britain - in the postwar period. It provides an overview of the nature of subsidies granted to shipping enterprises in various nations - including France, Italy, Japan, and America - and then moves on to an exploration of the preference system (the favouring of national ships) and how that came to replace subsidised shipping. It outlines different types of preferences, including the restriction of certain cargoes to national ships, and discriminatory tax systems. It concludes with the author’s prediction that discrimination through nationalism would continue to increase if not brought under regulatory control.

Keywords:   Subsidised Shipping, Maritime Nationalism, Shipping Politics, Nationalism, Shipping Taxes, Shipping Conferences
