Emma Maersk - Super container ship arrives from ChinaEmma Maersk - Super container ship arrives from China

15,000 containers and a crew of just 13 men. Too wide for the Panama or Suez Canals, it is strictly trans-Pacific. Cruising at 31 knots means goods arrive 4 days before other container ships on a China / California run. Danish built at a cost of US $145,000,000+. But most of these containers are shipped back to China EMPTY! That's right - the US sends almost nothing back. What does that tell you about it's current financial state?

China will collapse sooner then you might think. They have made some huge investment mistakes that will cost them dearly within 20 twenty years. Not going to mention specifics though, could get me in trouble! The future is in each country meeting its own domestic needs for the essentials at least. My advice for every country is to buy locally even if it does cost somewhat more. Everyone will get some of this back via services paid by their government's tax system.

Maybe, but if that happens they own enough of the US (and everyone else) that they'll take the economies of the world right down the gurgler with them.

I think that if it goes back empty it's because our high corporate taxes mean Chine can't afford to buy our goods...They can get them cheaper elsewhere.

I dont think that Americans can protect middle class jobs anymore. The rich Americans dont care about the middle class. The US government seems to wine and dine with new peasant countries while the lesser American Citizens are bipassed.

That is the truth! The governments now are not of geographical any more. They are by social or financial layer across the traditional boundaries. All work for the rich. You Americans and Indians and Dutch and whatever are in exactly at the same status as far as all governments are concerned.

Op de foto's is een paar maal hjhjet schip te zien met deklading gereed olm te lossen. Daarna enkele foto's zonder deklading, en waarschijnlijk ledig of in ballast (schroef zit nog boven water). Een volledig benutte capaciteit zou ons een afgeladen schip tonen tot aan de maximum diepgang. De Container was dus niet afgeladen bij aankomst dan vaart het ook sneller. Een schip dat zo vaart heeft overcapaciteit die niet benut wordt: dat is eerder onrendabel.

In the pictures a few times to see hjhjet ship with cargo on deck ready to solve elm. After some pictures without deck cargo, and probably empty or ballast (screw is still above water). A completely unused capacity would give us a packed ship show up to the maximum depth. The container was then not unloaded on arrival then speed is also faster. A ship that sails as overcapacity has not utilized: this is rather uneconomical.

That tells me the Danish are genius to sell something to China they'll only use half the time! And that we are giving China way too much money if they can afford to flounder it away like that under the current oil situations.

Yup, that's why we in South Yorkshire send our rubbish back to China - it's cheaper than recycling it here...

The Chinese make all kinds of goods, at the expense of their environment, send them here, and get back nothing but a bunch of rapidly depreciating paper money. The deal is getting too bad for them to last. I predict when they quit doing this, the price in Walmart will double or triple, and you'll see riot in the poor neighborhoods here.

No, I get it. And all their lead too. I guess we can toss away some of our IOU's since we're giving so much aid now? Yeah right...

The ships don't go back empty. We fill them with U.S dollars and Treasury bonds. The Chinese leadership has a commitment that China WILL NOT run short on toilet paper.
