On shipping, offshore, and death and taxes

On shipping, offshore, and death and taxes
Quote of the day at Mare Forum Singapore on Tuesday, perhaps not that surprisingly if you know him, went to Dimitris Belbas of Seafin.

Chairing a session entitled “Mythbusters” Belbas asked the subtle question – “Shipping and offshore crisis: is there life after death?”

In summary of that part of the session Belbas very successfully answered his own question commenting on the fact the only certainty in life was death and taxes. “Shipping has avoided paying taxes in a significant way so we should avoid death,” he quipped.
