Friday, September 15, 2017

Milton Friedman noted that free immigration is incompatible with the welfare state. Decades of experience in the U.S. and Europe make a case. It is impossible to combine free immigration, access to welfare state subsidies, and national integration. This is an impossible trinity. Any two of the three are possible but not all three.
