As described in the January 2020 Committee for Economic Development of the Conference Board (CED) policy statement, Boosting Immigration: Harnessing global talent to increase US competitiveness, innovation, and prosperity, the challenges presented by slowing population and labor force growth and an aging populace will require the US to embrace every available advantage to bolster the strength and productivity of the American workforce in order to help more American families benefit from growth and preserve our global leadership. With its ability to help supplement and complement our existing labor force with additional skills and talent, and help create new entrepreneurial and employment opportunities, immigration policy presents an underutilized opportunity for achieving our nation’s economic goals. Dr. Leah Boustan, Professor of Economics at Princeton University, joins to discuss her research on what we can learn from comparing US immigration past and present, and how those insights can inform today’s immigration policy debates.
