Description:

In "Let Their People Come," Lant Pritchett discusses five " irresistible forces" of global labor migration, and the " immovable ideas" that form a political backlash against it. Increasing wage gaps, different demographic futures, " everything but labor" globalization, and the continued employment growth in low skilled, labor intensive industries all contribute to the forces compelling labor to migrate across national borders. Pritchett analyzes the fifth irresistible force of " ghosts and zombies, " or the rapid and massive shifts in desired populations of countries, and says that this aspect has been neglected in the discussion of global labor mobility. "Let Their People Come" provides six policy recommendations for unskilled immigration policy that seek to reconcile the irresistible force of migration with the immovable ideas in rich countries that keep this force in check. In clear, accessible prose, this volume explores ways to regulate migration flows so that they are a benefit to both the global North and global South.
