E-M:/ Great Lakes Shipping and Economics of a Modal Shift



FYI - 2 links.
 
Snip: Chicago - The emerging debate about the future of overseas ships plying the Great Lakes took center stage on the shore of Lake Michigan on Wednesday.

Authors of a controversial study that puts the value of overseas ships operating in the Great Lakes at $55 million a year appeared before an independent panel of transportation experts at the Shedd Aquarium to defend their work.

That $55 million figure is important because many argue that the economic benefits of overseas shipping in the Great Lakes is a pittance compared with the ecological and economic costs wrought by shipborne invasive species.
