Doubling Up

There has been a focus lately on the “wages” which Somali pirates can expect to earn over a “career”.

Over a five year spree a pirate can make $168,000-$394,000, though of course that relatively high income comes with a pretty short life expectancy.

The implications are that such incentives will make the trade attractive to a fast-growing population of Somalis. The number of pirates is expected to double by 2015.
