Sample text

And, finally, which immigration policy would most benefit the host country? The practical significance of these questions is evident. For example, highly skilled immigrants who adapt rapidly to conditions in the host country's labor market can make a significant contribution to economic growth. Native workers need not be concerned about the possibility that these immigrants will increase expenditures on social assistance programs. Conversely, if immigrants lack the skills that employers demand and find it difficult to adapt, immigration may significantly increase the costs associated with maintaining many programs in the welfare state as well as exacerbate the wage inequality that might already exist in the host country.

This literature is mainly motivated by the various policy concerns and provides valuable insights into all these issues. In this paper, I summarize some of the key findings of Page 2 this literature, and apply them to the context of the potential migration problem faced by countries in the European Union (EU).
