33:07–: Weekly Listener Question: I am a Jones Act mariner. Although I and other American merchant mariners are quite libertarians, the Jones Act, which is the third rail in the maritime industry, turns many mariners against the libertarian.
Jones Act Mariners do not like John McCain, Ronald Reagan, or Cato. Although I support many reforms such as the removal of the U.S. requirement to shipbuild for Jones Act (that’s domestic), I disagree with the elimination cabotage rules that govern domestic trade. All domestic trade is protected by cabotage, including for trains, airlines, trucks, and trucking. However, it seems like the Jones Act and American Merchant Marine are being unfairly viewed. Are you ready to share your thoughts?
