During this period, the United States maintained open borders. Using a novel dataset of Norway-to-US migrants, we estimate the return to migration while accounting for migrant selection across households by comparing migrants with their brothers who stayed in Norway.
We also compare the fathers of migrants and non-migrants by wealth and occupation, and examine migrants' assimilation in the US labor market. We find that, unhindered by entry restrictions, migrants were negatively selected from the sending population and their return to migration was relatively low.

Of course on the other hand, the question is how to create a more equitable world in all areas of the planet and not just in very few of them, as it is happening at the moment, where even ex-rich nations are plummeting Italy is an obvious example , the countryside and the small towns are dying almost everywhere, certainly in Europe.

But advocating unlimited movement of unlimited numbers of people is not a solution. If this is , I cannot imagine what it will be in I cannot see how we will be able to avoid a repoliticisation of demography. Yes but the difference between moving to a country like japan,w here I have also lived, and to the UK, is that in Japan, like in most countries, employers will prefer to employ local people ahead of immigrants. Even in preference to immigrants who speak fluent Japanese. The UK is unusual, because here employers prefer to employ immigrants ahead of the local population.
And they may well be right, in so far as their views would reflect their own personal experiences. The article seems to miss the point of internal migration…such as the Chinese rural interior to the coastal industrial regions…. Imagine the uproar there would be if Americans in New York had restrictions placed on their rights to move to California.
Imagine how one union of nations the EU appears not to be compared with another union of nations — the United KingdomS. In both examples there is almost certainly the same cultural separation and even linquistic problems as demonstrated by subtitles used for certain Scottish produced TV! We can even extend that to Geordies, Scousers, etc! Although I found your article very interesting i also found it very apologetic for the circumstances of your birth or any first world birth and you insinuated we should feel a responsibility for those with less advantages.
The U.S.’ immigration laws of inequality
That view came of as sounding a bit elitist. Your writing also tended to focus mostly on the economic advantages of immigration. One of the reasons that the far-right is growing in Europe is because of this very reason. There is little regard to the watering down of native culture, the fact that tribalism is alive and well and there is growing racial strife-all byproducts of open immigration. Europe need only look overseas to America and see what hundred years of multiculturalism has created. It was once thought that Internationalism would end nationalism, wen in truth the exact opposite is happening and not only in Europe.

Open immigration also robes poorer nations of their finest most hard working citizens, who might just be better served working to build their nation so those special advantages of being born in a first wold nation disappear. So, economists have proven that free trade agreements between rich and poor countries will not result in industries moving form the rich to the poor countries. They have proven that deregulating the financial markets will not make the economy more unstable.
They have proven that letting industries form large monopolies does not harm the public interest. And now they have proven that government policies aimed at flooding the labor market and increasing the competition for jobs does not make wages go down, it makes them go higher. Surely only a racist could disagree with this.
