Fellow Alon Levy Mentioned in Slow Boring

In “We Should Try to Make Good Trains,” Matthew Yglesias mentions Fellow Alon Levy:

“But most people do not ride trains, and therefore nobody seems to particularly mind if the policies they adopt make trains bad. One major culprit here, discussed in a recent Niskanen Center policy brief by Alon Levy, is Buy America rules which hurt train quality in an effort to turn rolling stock manufacturing into a job-creation engine. And House Democrats unfortunately have a bunch of new ideas that would impose all sorts of inefficiency on freight rail again for the sake of jobs.”
