El objetivo de este ensayo es evaluar el poder gubernamental y auto regulatorio de Puerto Rico, en relación con las leyes de cabotaje y su relación con Estados Unidos. Se estudia la historia de Puerto Rico con Estados Unidos, ciertas leyes y jurisprudencia, así como la responsabilidad de Estados Unidos y la Organización Mundial del Comercio. Se concluye que, aunque Puerto Rico goza de ciertos atributos de soberanía, sigue siendo un territorio bajo el control del Congreso de Estados Unidos.
