Should Immigration Be Restricted?

No country on Earth actually has open borders. What would happen if people could move between countries as freely as they now move within countries? Caplan argues that, contrary to popular opinion, the overall results would be excellent. So why not?

Welcome to a lecture in PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) on the topic of immigration. The lecutre will be held in lecture hall 7 (hörsal 7) on Wednesday 22 Aug, at 35 pm.
