Synopsis: Nigel Harris's ground-breaking book examines migration as a response to changes in the world economy. He shows that, despite tighter controls, increasing numbers of workers are moving, whether legally or not, between countries. Unskilled immigrant workers play a vital role in improving standards of living in the developed world. And in turn the countries from which they have come benefit in a major way from the earnings sent back home. Arguing that few of the fears about immigration are justified, and that increased immigration tends to mean that jobs and incomes expand, Harris shows why governments will have to ensure the freedom of people to come and go as they choose.
From Library Journal:
Harris (development planning, Univ. Coll., London) is no stranger to controversy. In earlier works, such as National Liberation (Taurus, 1991), Harris developed debatable conclusions on the diminishing nature of the global social order and world economics. In this new well-written study, Harris tackles global immigration. He contends that as the world economic order changes, international migration patterns respond in the form of immigration of unskilled laborers. Harris concludes that this immigration isn't necessarily negative. Indeed, he says, Western leaders should appreciate this new immigration, and he argues that border crossings should be simplified for workers. Harris also looks beyond the West and considers immigration patterns in Asian nations. As immigrants grow in number, so do jobs and incomes. Although many people, among them California's Proposition 187 proponents and numerous Sunbelt politicians, would take serious issue with Harris's conclusions, his latest work deserves the attention of social scientists and economists. For academic libraries.

Book Description London & New York :. I. B. Tauris & Company, 1995. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 254 pp.- The world economy is becoming ever more integrated. Goods, capital, finance, technology and information flow across borders with increasing ease. Yet most people today remain firmly fixed in particular countries. The passport is now the universal symbol mof a world in which, like the serfs of the Middle Ages, we are all tied to a single piece of soil. This book examines migration as a response to changes in the world economy. He shows that despite tighter controls, increasing numbers of workers are moving, whether legally or nor, between countries. Unskilled immigrant workers play a vital role in improving standards of living in the developed world. In turn, the countries from which they have come benefit in a major way from the earnings sent back home. Arguing that few of the fears about immigration are justified, and that increased imigration tends to mean that jobs and incomes expand, this work shows why governments will have to ensure the freedom of people to come and go as they choose.
