Webinar: An Economic Case For Immigration

APRIL 24, 2013

People constantly search for ways to improve their quality of life. Often times this requires relocating to new places. While relocation within the same country is considered acceptable, many oppose relocation when foreign nationals relocate to their country because foreigners "steal" jobs from local workers. Professor Benjamin Powell thinks this is not true. Immigrants improve their own lives, but they also have positive effects on the local economy: immigrants create new jobs for locals.

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J.

Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
