"Critics of international trade will not like this book at all. Hornberger and Ebeling have assembled a collection of articles that are easy to read and understand. These articles seek to introduce elements of truth and good sense into public policy debate that have been dominated by critics who have been selling their nonsense to industry interest groups with the highest bid for protection from market forces." -- Richard B. McKenzie, Walter B. Gerkin Professor of Enterprise and Society, University of California, Irvine
"Marvelously explained here: Trade enriches, and more immigration benefits the United States. Read it and cheer." -- Julian Simon, author of The Economic Consequences of Immigration
"This book explains some of the factors Peter Brimelow, a senior editor at Forbes, ignores or glosses over in his book Alien Nation. The contributors explain that free trade and open immigration are closely related, two aspects of what constitute a free society, two natural rights that government has no just reason to inhibit, and transactions that have promoted progress and prosperity to the extent that they have been permitted. The authors also note that talk of limiting immigration betrays an inherent collectivism toward human endeavors. If we don't think bureaucrats in Washington should be allowed to prescribe the precise design of filters on the emission systems of our cars or the exact formula of gasoline, why should they be allowed to dictate the precise composition of our neighborhoods?" -- Alan W. Bock, Columnist, The Orange County, Calif, Register
"With the consensus in favor of open borders perhaps under greater attack than ever before, this book should help convert Americans to the cause of a genuinely free world." -- Doug Bandow, senior fellow, Cato Institute
