Immigration policy

Immigration policy " Perhaps partly because of its apparent simplicity, everyone has a view on immigration. Talk of 'brain drains' or 'immigration invasions' pervades newspapers and radio talkback, depending on whether we have a net outflow or a net inflow of people at any point in time. But the complexity of the impacts of immigration means that the easy answers are seldom the right answers. In this policy briefing we outline the basic economic principles and research findings that lie behind immigration policy. While there are non-economic reasons to encourage certain types of immigration, this note, and New Zealand's immigration regime, focuses on economic migrants.
