Economics of Immigration

ID : 1273   
« back to classes page

Immigrants are people, and that throws an inconvenient truth into the economic assessment of immigration. Where they emigrate from, the culture they bring or discard, the communities they choose to join, and the range of skills they bring — these pieces of information must be combined with other data for economists, including amateur ones, to assess the value of immigration. George J. Borjas’s book, We Wanted Workers: Unraveling the Immigration Narrative (W.W. Norton, 2016), poses new and difficult considerations such as key demographic changes of legal immigration, English fluency, and the outdated image of the melting pot. Join us as we read and discuss the economics of immigration.
