About this product
- DescriptionPoverty, famines, wars, and ethnic conflicts lead to large movements of refugees. The papers in this book provide an analysis of the ecomics of immigration. Junankar discusses why people migrate, the likely destinations for migrants, and their employment in the destination countries. He studies the benefits to the migrant families in terms of higher wages and living standards, and also studies how immigrants fare in the Australian labour markets in terms of finding good jobs, and whether there is discrimination against them. Ecomics of Immigration analyses the macroecomic impacts of immigration on the Australian ecomy and discusses why some groups favour immigration while other groups are against it. Junankar argues immigration has been beneficial for employment and growth; t only adding to labour supply but also to labour demand, hence leading to favourable outcomes. This collection of essays shows how immigration has helped the ecomic development of Australia, while also highlighting that the historical reasons for immigration lie in the colonisation of many countries in Asia and Africa.
