Negative Immigration from a Cultural Perspective
From a cost-benefit perspective, things don’t look good for migrants all over the world, especially in Europe. EU nations are tightening border controls, raising red-tape barriers to legal migration, reducing the length of work permits, and shutting off access to the social welfare system. Some countries have closed the door to both work and social assistance. Other nations think that the “boat is full”, that there are too many migrants increasing unemployment, abuse the welfare system and take jobs from natives. With all these, Europe is a place where migration is especially useful from an economic perspective. European citizens are not mobile and there are large productivity differences across and within countries. Spatial arbitrage by mobile workers – migrants – reduces the economic burden of these rigidities. This article comes in shedding a light unto this subject.
