A Political Economy of International Migration, 1815-1914
The present world economy has been strongly influenced by the comparative freedom of international migration in the nineteenth century. A simple model is advanced to explain the salient historical factors of immigration policy. It is based upon maximization of factor incomes, national distributions of income, factor endowments, and constitutions. The open door policy of the largest destination of European immigrants, the United States, emerges as an apparent anomaly. The explanation is the continuing identification of immigrants with their countries of origin and their easy enfranchisement that made them an electoral force to be reckoned with.
