    Mr. Dana Goward is the Founder, President, and Executive Director of the Resilient Navigation & Timing Foundation, a nonprofit, public benefit corporation that helps protect critical infrastructure by promoting resilient navigation and timing worldwide.

    He is the proprietor at Maritime Governance, LLC. A licensed helicopter and fixed wing pilot, he has also served as a navigator at sea and is a retired Coast Guard Captain.

    In August 2013, Mr. Goward retired from the federal Senior Executive Service, having served as the maritime navigation authority for the United States. As Director, Marine Transportation Systems for the US Coast Guard, he led 12 different navigation-related business lines budgeted at over $1.3 billion/year.

    During his career, he has represented the US at IMO, IALA, the UN anti-piracy working group, and other international forums.

    This paper investigates maritime policies from the perspective of behavioural law and economics by questioning the role of political instruments, levels of development, groupthink bias, moral hazards and practical examples. Through the emergence of deregulation and procedural simplification, the reasons behind overregulation need to be revisited. The future of maritime governance is expected to hollow out several functions for alternative institutions and keep the governance simple for performing other roles such as advisory services, mainstreaming, amongst others. Therefore, the concept of maritime governance without a government can be thought as a driving force for the future. Based on the deregulation and the hollow-out framework, maritime governance (particularly in developing and developed countries) should focus on the softpower of maritime administration and the role of expert power; as well as referent power to mainstream the maritime industry.


    Sounds to me like they are thinking beyond continental government control... or governance without a particular government.

    I'd call that forward thinking.

    Greg Rudzinski, you asked:
    "Is The Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation a lobby front for the NYSE ?"

    I don't know. I've been, let's say, "puzzled" by them the last few times that name has appeared in stories connected with navigation tech. Anyone else know who they are? Do they have any existence outside advocacy?
