Macro Article – Economics of Labor Immigration

.  This assignment focuses on these sources of economic growth:  size of the labor force and productivity growth.

During Weeks 4 and 5, we study GDP concepts and the four factors that lead to economic growth – more people, more capital equipment, technological change that raises the productivity of labor (human capital) and physical capital, and the rule of law.  The macro paper for this course will address the economics of labor immigration, building on your studies in Weeks 4 and 5. 

Please discuss the following topics:

 Immigration is controversial – does it grow our economy?  Do immigrants compete with native workers and lower wages?  Does immigration cause higher unemployment? How might technological developments impact this issue?

First, read this article:
