ABSTRACT
After near eradication in the 20th century, piracy is again imposing significant costs on the conduct of international trade in the 21st century. In response, there has been a significant increase in the provision of anti-piracy services from both the private and public sectors. The costs associated with providing these services are considerable and it is difficult to assess their cost-effectiveness. The underlying economic forces that affect the efficacy of anti-piracy measures are explored. The conclusion is that a return to the pirate-free status of the latter part of the 20th century is unlikely.
