Abstract or Summary
  • This paper develops an option value model to examine vessel owners in deciding to participate or not in the vessel buyback program. The model accounts for the uncertainty generally involved in a decision to retire an aged vessel and the underlying value of waiting for new information about the profitability of such a change, which may substantially affect the willingness to participate in the vessel buyback programs. The results indicate that policy makers have many factors to be concerned with uncertainty as this value of waiting may be so great as to invalidate any vessel buyback program that do not take it into account. This also contributes to explain the failure of most of the vessel buyback programs aimed at encouraging the retirement of aged vessels in Taiwan. In addition, the lowest threshold value of the willingness to accept is estimated and its policy implications is also discussed.
