Abstract

'Nederlanders zagen dat Engelsen sneller waren, maar vonden aanpassing te duur'. Was de VOC wel zo dynamisch? Schepen van de Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie waren langzamer dan die van vergelijkbare ondernemingen in andere landen. Een kwestie van zuinigheid en conservatisme, zeggen wetenschappers die onderzochten hoe het kwam dat een Nederlands schip weken of zelfs maanden langer deed over een reis naar Azië.
