Immigration And Economic Growth: Is Keynes Back?

Rothstein, Bo, (2017), “Immigration And Economic Growth: Is Keynes Back?”, Social Europe, 20 Ιουνίου

During the huge refugee crisis in 2015, among the OECD countries, Sweden accepted the largest number of refugees in relation to its population size (10m): 163,000 asylum seekers. If the United States had received an equal share compared to its population, it would have been about 5.5 million people but it took in only about 70,000 asylum seekers. For Great Britain, their equivalent would have been about 900,000 people, but only 40,000 were accepted. As for the other Nordic countries – Denmark, Norway and Finland – each accepted to take about 30,000 refugees in 2015, which is less than one fifth of those that went to Sweden.
