What a slowing world economy looks like

From Singapore.

On the beach enjoying the view.

Empty container ships floating idly offshore, two days ago. While watching, one of the ships moved a little. So there is some activity.

My in-laws tell me they have never seen it like this.

It isn't that the port is extremely busy (idle loading facilities--are those containers empty?). View from a revolving restaurant atop grain silos (advertised as the only one in the world!)
