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.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
