Everyone is aware that the business cycle is facing different growth periods, followed by adjustments to rectify poor distribution, usually due to credit expansion. We also know that there is a boom in investment in offshore assets between 2001 and 2009 due to China’s new entry to the World Trade Organization in 2001. However, we are facing a significant imbalance between supply, demand and prices, which are changing away from the traditional direction. Thus, big and important questions arise: What would happen if traditional investors reduced their commitments to offshore finance and the purchase of ships on which the world economy depends on international trade? Is there alternative funding? How will the size of investment and production affect marine wealth?
