This Wednesday, February 9 at 8PM on Your Computer: Bryan Caplan on Immigration Restrictions.
Why restrict immigration? Is it to protect native workers from low-wage competition? To protect tax-payers from welfare-state exploitation? To protect native culture? To protect native liberty? Caplan argues that these justifications are weaker than they appear. And even if they weren’t, there are cheaper and more humane policy responses.
