Comment on James Giesecke: economic impact of a general increase in skilled migration

2017-05-05T04:26:34Z (GMT) by Clarke, Harry
A previous issue of People and Place carried an article by James Giesecke claiming that increasing Australia’s immigration program would disadvantage incumbent Australians. This claim is inconsistent with economic theory and seems unsound. Skilled migration intakes are likely to provide long-term net economic benefits for incumbent Australians. Copyright.
