Cato event: What Economists Think About Immigration (July 26, 2013)

The event featured economists discussing the economic impact of immigration on various segments of the economy, with a particular focus on empirical data pertaining to immigration to the United States. The panel featured Madeline Zavodny, Professor of Economics, Agnes Scott College, and Adjunct Fellow, American Enterprise Institute; Ethan Lewis, Associate Professor of Economics, Dartmouth College; and Michael Clemens, Senior Fellow and Research Manager, Center for Global Development; moderated by Alex Nowrasteh, Immigration Policy Analyst, Cato Institute.

The Cato page about the event (with embedded video) is available here. The event was also broadcast over C-SPAN and is available on the C-SPAN website here.

Open Borders blogger John Lee, who attended the event in person, blogged about it here.

Immigration solutions: part of a Cato Immigration Conference

The conference, titled “Is Immigration Good for America?” had three panels. Video for all panels is available at the event page for the conference. The conference built on articles and material in the Cato Journal Winter 2012 edition.

From a general perspective, the third panel, which features discussion of keyhole solutions to immigration, is the most relevant. The panel features Ted Alden as well as open borders advocates Bryan Caplan and Alex Nowrasteh, both of whose work is extensively referenced on the Open Borders website.
