Immigration
移民问题

Let them come
让移民来得更猛烈些吧!

The West should be more welcoming to migrants—there’s competition from the East for them
西方应该更加欢迎移民,不然东方就把他们竞争走了

Aug 27th 2011 | from the print edition

IMMIGRATION is a sensitive subject at the best of times, and this is not one of them. The economic crisis has destroyed millions of jobs in rich countries, making their governments especially touchy about the impact of immigration on the demand for indigenous labour.

即便是在光景好的年代,移民也是个敏感话题,更何况如今光景衰败。发达国家在经济危机中失去了千百万的就业岗位,因此,政府对移民影响本土劳动力需求的问题显得尤为敏感。

Such concerns are illogical, because immigration is counter-cyclical. Recession in rich countries has discouraged some would-be incomers from trying their luck. America, for instance, has seen a sharp decline in Mexicans trying to cross its southern border. Immigration to Europe has slowed. Some studies also suggest that increased inflows of migrants are a leading indicator of a pickup in growth.

这样的担忧毫无逻辑,因为移民是反周期性的。发达国家的经济衰退已经让一些潜在移民望而却步。比如说,从美国南部边界进入该国的墨西哥人数量已经大大减少了。欧洲的移民量也在减缓。一些研究还表明移入居民的增加是经济增长好转的先行指标。
