Immigrants = Good for Them, Good for Us

Just got through watching a few excellent YouTube videos featuring Philippe Legrain, author of the new Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them.

The title is pretty self-explanatory. Suffice to say that if Lou Dobbs could read, he would read something else than Immigrants.

Legrain, a former correspondent for The Economist, amongst other gigs, blogs at his own site and at The Guardian's Comment is Free.

Tyler Cowen calls Immigrants "the single best non-technical defense of a liberal immigration policy". Johann Norberg says, "Our understanding of globalisation was incomplete. This book makes it whole."

That was good enough for me. Fittingly, my copy of Immigrants is immigrating from Amazon.ca -- since it's not yet available at Amazon.com -- and set me back about $24 US.
