Cato Scholar Raises Jones Act Awareness in Puerto Rico

(Published by Jones Act Gazette - February issue)

Cato Institute research fellow Colin Grabow was invited to speak at a Puerto Rico ICON Institute event last November about the Jones Act's impact on the U.S. commonwealth. In the approximately half-hour discussion, Grabow addressed the law's history (especially as it pertains to Puerto Rico), its costs, and common arguments used in favor of the Jones Act.
