The United States transportation system must fulfill two basic and inter-related requirements. The first is to stimulate our economic position through foreign trade and commerce. The second requirement is to add to our defense posture during these times of continuing international tension. This paper examines the role of the United States merchant marine in furthering our economic and defensive interests. United States shipping policies as implemented by legislation and the resulting federal assistance programs have failed to promote an adequate United States merchant fleet. The threat of proving Soviet maritime strength emphasizes the need for a revision of United States policies to provide a merchant marine of modern, competitive, and efficient ships. Suggestions are made relative to improvements in policies, encouraging operating efficiencies, and changing federal assistance programs to reduce subsidy payments.
