Alex Tabarrok, sobre o tema.
Economists…tend not to distinguish between us and them. We look instead for policies that at least in principle make everyone better off. Policies that make us better off at the price of making them even worse off are for politicians, not economists.
Immigration makes immigrants much better off. In the normal debate this fact is not considered to be of great importance — who cares about them? But economists tend not to count some people as worth more than others, especially not if the difference is something so random as where a person was born.
Belo trecho, né?
