Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration | Bryan Caplan
1 post | 2 read | 2 to read
American policy-makers have long been locked in a heated battle over whether, how many, and what kind of immigrants to allow to live and work in the country. Those in favor of welcoming more immigrants often cite humanitarian reasons, while those in favor of more restrictive laws argue the need to protect native citizens. But economist Bryan Caplan adds a new, compelling perspective to the immigration debate: He argues that opening all borders could eliminate absolute poverty worldwide and usher in a booming worldwide economyundeniably benefiting all of humanity. With a clear and conversational tone, exhaustive research, and vibrant illustrations by Zach Weinersmith, Open Borders makes the case for unrestricted immigration easy to follow and hard to deny.

I went to NetGalley looking for Hoop Dreams (it wasn‘t there, boo) and came away with this instead. It has a definite bias (it means to), but the author explains his points clearly and well. Definitely worth a look if you‘re interested in the topic — and nowadays you should be. Thanks to First Second for access to the pdf.
