Thank you for catching this! I'd propose that the abstract is ambiguous: It first refers to "the dismantling of a...policy reform" and then to the consumer welfare impact of the "policy reform," so it's not obvious whether the latter policy reform refers to the dismantling or to the original policy reform. 

But the paper makes clear that you are correct! "I find that dismantling the policy increased consumer welfare by 1.62 percent." Thank you for catching that. I'm updating the post.
