Immigration as an Economic Asset: The German Experience (Paperback)Sarah Spencer (editor)

All kinds of assumptions, almost inevitably negative are made about immigrants, and in Britain no research exists that could confirm or confound these assumptions. Research-based information about the German experience of immigration is made available in this book. Five German economists and social scientists, using detailed research and statistical analysis, set out the facts about migration to Germany since the war and the impact it has had. The evidence - that immigrants have made a substantial contribution to the growth of the German economy, that the ammount the immigrants pay in taxes exceeds the ammount they draw in welfare benefits, that migrants have not usually displaced German workers - has implications important for developing future immigration policies, and for changing public attitudes.
