    From ZeroHedge, today:

    ” … following a 4.4% decline today, the Baltic Dry Index has now plunged over 20% from its recent peak (and the more crucial Capesize container rates even more) as underlying demand simply cannot keep pace with the massive (overbuilt) ship glut that remains.”

    This is how once-proud companies like Maersk fall bankrupt, believing the myths instead of looking out of the window.
