ECON 365: Primer on Immigration

In preparation for the Steinhardt Lecture on Thursday and our subsequent discussion of the topic, here are a few links that describe how economists think about immigration:

Definitely read this New Times Magazine article on the Card/Borjas debate over whether or not immigrants adversely affect low-skilled/low-income workers.

Alex Tabborok's open letter on immigration.

An op-ed from Tyler Cowen (including a discussion of Steinhardt lecturer Giovanni Peri's work). Followed by Cowen's Q&A on immigration.

That should get you started.
