The primary objective of this dissertation is to investigate the recent financial crisis and its consequences in the shipping industry. First of all, previous but equally important - mainly banking - crises are studied so as to reveal their potential correlation with the crisis under study. Additionally, a detailed report on the structure and characteristics of this crisis is provided in order to identify its main origins and causes as well as to analyze its effects on the global economy and fundamental macroeconomic variables. Furthermore, management practices, policy responses and ways to overcome this financial stress are examined in comparison to the respective methods adopted in past major international postwar crises. Finally, we focus on the impact of the recent financial crisis on the shipping industry through an analysis of key subsectors such as freight rates, shipping finance, vessel values, new-buildings orderbook and scrapping activities.
