in period 1914-1960”
[I]Economic Overview[/I]

With the rapid development of technologies and industries, the world has discovered
the unique century. Century which is stunning imagination by its spectacular romanticism,
which has been fulfilled by fantastic artistic colors and bold engineering solutions.
This century is called – “The Golden Age of Atlantic”.

At the same time in period since 1900 until 1960 approximately 22,721,355 immigrants have
arrived in the United States of America (statistic data). Most of them arrived from European
counties. At the same time, in period since 1900 until 1914 around 21,300,000 passengers were
carried between European ports and ports in the USA, in both directions. These numbers immodestly
attract attention.

These two overviews is the one work called “The Golden Age of Atlantic”.
The Part 1 contains the historical overview of the Golden Age of Atlantic.
The Part 2 is a logical extension of the Part 1. It is a trial to show result of calculations of
the potential loss of the passenger flow in transatlantic traffic because of geopolitical
situation in USA and Europe in period 1914-1960.

Letting jet travel take over was the worst thing to ever happen to beauty in naval architecture. They just don’t make them like they used to!
