THE SHIPPING NEWS: Why are shipping interests so closely following the fiscal cliff outcome? They have good reason to worried, as CNBC’s Lori Ann LaRocco explains in a new book, “Dynasties of the Sea: The Shipowners and Financiers Who Expanded the Era of Free Trade.” Consider this: 95 percent of everything in your household moved on a ship. “There’s not so much wrong with the global economy. What is wrong is that there are no leaders.” said Jacob Stolt-Nielsen, Founder of Stolt-Nielsen, a shipping and seafood company. “No one seems to be able to take charge. In America, today they are just bickering about peanuts instead of getting together and discussing other changes that they can make, and find a common ground.” Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics writes: “LaRocco’s profiles of the colorful captains of the global shipping industry provide a unique insight into why they’ve succeeded and what powers global growth.”
