A loaded cargo ship heads out to sea from New York Harbor. Over the past decade, the world's available shipping capacity has grown faster than global trade has.
Why the Global Shipping Industry Will Be Tough to Salvage
The political order that defines the world is changing, and with it, the global shipping industry. The advent of container shipping in the mid-1950s propelled the age of globalization forward as the world's biggest economies forged new and closer trade links with one another. International trade is now undergoing another massive overhaul as the rise of Western isolationism, the restructuring of China's economy, the weakening of European growth and the Fourth Industrial Revolution alter how goods and services flow between countries in the coming decades.

The geopolitical consequences of a world after fossil fuels
Imagining a World After Fossil Fuels
Since 1750, mankind has pumped some 150 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Almost half that amount has been emitted since 2000, 9.9 billion tons of it in 2016 alone. U.S. President Donald Trump claims to think that links between carbon emissions and climate change are "a hoax," but if so, the hoax has taken in almost every scientist in the world. By burning fossil fuels, they believe, we have altered the chemistry of the air and the oceans. Last year was the first on record in which the atmosphere's carbon content never dropped below 400 parts per million, a level not seen for 800,000 years. The climate is warming and becoming more volatile, the ice caps are melting, and mass extinctions are underway. Another species of plant or animal disappears forever every 20 minutes or so.

The New Renaissance Man
Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps the most famous Renaissance man in history, once claimed, "The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." If anyone were qualified to say so, it would be him: Da Vinci excelled in nearly every field of science, technology and art that existed in his time. During the Renaissance, it seemed as if there were no limits to man's capacity to learn. But the world has changed since da Vinci's day.
