Collaborations happen in interesting ways
Last week, two of my authored book chapters were published in the BOOK <<Regulation and Finance in the Port Industry: Lessons from Worldwide Experiences>> edited by Claudio Ferrari, Hercules Haralambides, Sergio Prete and Alessio Tei. My two chapters are:
- Regulation and Finance in the Norwegian Port Sector, co-authored with Axel Merkel.
- Regulation and Finance in the Bangladesh Port Industry, single authored.
During mid August 2018, Axel wrote me a message on facebook congratulating on my PhD defense. I replied, “thanks, lets write a book chapter on Norwegian ports together”. I shared the call for chapters circulated by the editors. After three months, we wrote a chapter. He took the lead and I wrote the last two sections. A smooth collaboration. You can have such smooth collaboration only few in instances a year.
