Ghost Fleet Off Malaysia

Today’s sobering snapshot of the global recession is a fleet of some 500 cargo ships chained together east of Singapore. Empty cargo ships. They have no destination and no one to pay to fill them with goods.

They’re sitting idly, part of the wave of capitalist overproduction currently crashing down, worldwide. This photo is part of a very good article which is well worth reading.
