Economists Agree: Immigration is Good for the Economy

Now we just need to get politicians on board.

A recent study indicates that most of the growth in the U.S. labor force over the next twenty years or so will be from immigration. The study also shows that immigration is good for the economy. This should not be a surprise since most economic studies show the positive effects of immigration. In fact the only people who disagree are conservative politicians.

This study also shows that most immigrants live in metropolitan areas. And for metropolitan areas to thrive they need to continue to be a magnet for immigration.

An article describing the study, with a link to the study itself, can be found on Quartz at Almost all Growth.

Many of these posts are based on writing that I did for that election. Rather than delete it all, I decided to dump it onto the internet.
