“The Panama Canal Expansion and Small U.S. Ports: Did They Benefit?”

This study uses public data for U.S. ports from 2000 to 2017 and a fixed effect model to investigate the potential indirect effect that the expansion of the Panama Canal may have had on the import volumes of relatively small ports in the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. 

Dr. Jorge Medina is an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at NJCU. His research interests include health economics, public health issues, economics of inequality, and maritime economics. 

The seminar will be conducted via Zoom. (EMAIL PRAVULA@njcu.edu TO ATTEND)
