‘Economic and Fiscal Impacts of Immigration’ with Pia M. Orrenius, Vice President and Senior Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
Date: Thursday, June 3
Time: 12pm to 1pm EST
The United States is the world’s largest economy and top migrant destination, but immigration is slowing and the native workforce is aging. Decelerating labor force growth implies weaker output, however immigration reform could both boost participation among existing immigrants and bring in more, fueling the economy. Dr. Orrenius, who served as senior economist on the Council of Economic Advisors, will examine these trends as well as policy impacts on native workers and taxpayers.
