James List looks inside the boat brokerage business.
The Netherlands are pretty interesting in many ways, even if you’re not necessarily interested in post-impressionist art, fine lagers and the lax drug policy. What always amazed me is how small, geographically, the Netherlands are compared to their cultural and industrial importance throughout the ages. Not to go off on a tangent, but it always fascinated me how the small country (along with their Belgian neighbours) managed to become such a strong colonial power rivalling the British empire, France and so forth. – From James List
