Here. I always wonder what:
1. Low skill immigrants think when they're basically told that they're
less valuable to our country than high skill immigrants, and
High skill immigrant economists think when they are told that we need
to provide favorable treatment to a certain type of labor relative to
another type of labor.
If the evidence suggests more immigrants
would be good, then by all means - increase the number of immigrants.
But I don't see why this "privilege the high skill immigrants" mantra
The fact that it's often
paired with really bad claims about shortages of scientists and
engineers doesn't endear me to the argument either, of course.
Comparative advantage: a partial truth
