NIESR's Jonathan Portes on the Coalition's refusal to publish a new report on immigration
This book, which represents quantitative social science at its very best, explores the extent and nature of the political integration of Britain’s growing ethnic minority population.
New research from NIESR finds that a 1% point increase in the immigrant share in the labour force is associated with an increase in labour productivity of between 0.06 and 0.07 percent.
Ed Miliband is right to put training on the political agenda, but in pointing the finger at firms who recruit skilled migrants, he is attacking the wrong target.
It's possible that a society of educated people is likely to be more cultured and scientific-minded than one of non-graduates, and this should have positive externalities in the form of better political discourse and higher culture. There is, however, little evidence of this in practice.
