Matthew Buck Explains How America’s Supply Chains Got Railroaded

Feb 17, 2022

Matthew Jinoo Buck is a fellow at the American Economic Liberties Project and a first-year student at Yale Law School.

His article in the American Prospect, “How America’s Supply Chains Got Railroaded” tells the history of how deregulation and consolidation gave us a railroad industry that is now a weak link in our supply chain. He also tells how the industry is more dangerous for workers and less reliable for customers even as it produces outsized profits for investors.
