10/17/2011 - Center Founder Authors New Book, Value-Added Immigration: Lessons for the United States From Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom

Value-added-immigration-coverFormer Secretary of Labor and founder of the Center for the Study of Human Resources Dr. Ray Marshall has authored a new book titled Value-Added Immigration: Lessons for the United States From Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. The Economic Policy Institute (EPI) will hold a book release and signing event along with a panel discussion on Oct. 31 at EPI's offices in Washington D.C. Event details and registration information are provided below.

About the Book: Employment-based immigration has become increasingly important for advanced liberal democracies like Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. All four countries are “immigration nations,” increasingly dependent on migration for their economic and social welfare, but the United States has immigration policies that are almost universally regarded as dysfunctional. In his new book, Value-Added Immigration: Lessons for the United States From Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom, former Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall analyzes and comparatively assesses the immigration systems of Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom – which are generally regarded as having some of the world’s best-managed migration systems. Drawing upon the best of what those systems have to offer, Marshall then proposes some general principles for effective immigration reform in the United States.  (Book summary provided by Economic Policy Institute)
