Hanjin, which succumbed earlier this week to a crippling combination of lackluster global trade, a glut of container ships and brutal competition from rivals, is among many shipping giants that have struggled since the financial crisis.
this post is very misleading. most of what this post looks at is gross numbers rather than net numbers. for instance, the thrid chart is Total US Trade (EX + IM)…a gross amount. on a net basis, the US imported 335bn from China and exported 70bn during all of 2008…btw i have no idea why the author only used from jan-oct…nevertheless, gross trade is a useless number (see here: ) ..that 5x imbalance is by far the largest imbalance. Totally inexcusable. Again this post is very misleading and i wouldn’t use it for much.
