On migration - Prof. Mukand's research in The Economist

image

A policy paper by Prof. Sharun Mukand of CAGE in the Department of Economics was recently mentioned in The Economist. Prof. Mukand's research shows, among other things, that relaxing immigration rules by just 3 percent in developed countries would generate more than $150 billion for the world’s economy. He also showed that increasing the influx of working-age migrants from developing countries would help sustain social security and pension systems in the developed world.

Read the article, titled "Border Follies", on the online edition of The Economist.

Read the full policy paper, presented at Chatham House last October.
