ever since that incident recently where 23 crew members had to be air lifted off of a container ship after it tipped over on its side near alaska, i have been intrigued by these behemoths. there was a great article in the new york review of books that discussed the implications of the vessels on the global economy. in many ways, it's not the size of the ships so much as the astronomical size of the ports that accomodate them that has led to the economic development of certain regions. a particularly interesting case study is how manufacturing and shipping trade moved away from nyc.
