Editorial Reviews


"Benjamin Powell has put together an academic and intellectual tour de force by bringing together some of the most accomplished thinkers on the critical issue of immigration in order to debunk some of the fallacies that obfuscate the current debate and make the pursuit of reasonable policies so difficult today."

-- Alvaro Vargas Llosa is a Senior Fellow of The Center on Global Prosperity at the Independent Institute and author of author of Global Crossings: Immigration, Civilization, and America

"The Economics of Immigration carefully and objectively summarizes what we know about immigration and then challenges us with bold new perspectives on immigration policy. This is an excellent collection and a must-have for anyone interested the movement of people around the world."

-- Alex Tabarrok, Director of the Center for Study of Public Choice and Bartley J. Madden Chair in Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University

"The Economics of Immigration is two different books, both of them essential. The first half is a rigorous, hardheaded overview of the best evidence we have on the economic and fiscal effects of immigration. It takes research seriously, but is written in terms anyone can understand. The second half is a rich policy debate, giving fair hearing to sharply opposed views and innovative proposals. It's an adult conversation about a tough issue, mercifully free of partisan flim flam. The world needed a book like this and Powell provided it."

-- Michael Clemens, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development, where he leads the migration and development initiative

"A nuanced, serious-minded effort to examine the facts behind a complex and contentious social issue. The Economics of Immigration is especially recommended for college and public library Economics Studies shelves."

-- James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review
