  • Oct. 19 - We Are Not Alone

    Comment: We Are Not Alone
    The Economist ran a scathing commentary on the state of Britainís immigration system and, lo and behold, the problems created by their immigration policy and system are not so different than our own. Most significantly, the editorial believes that British policy has stifled high-tech businesses, especially smaller ones, from expanding and kept out talented students. Like British policy, U.S. immigration policy makes it difficult for domestic businesses to quickly fill newly-created jobs with overseas employees when no domestic workers are available. The editorial points to three problems in the current British system as the primary bottlenecks: a political party in power with a goal of reducing net migration unrealistically quickly; the amount of bureaucracy involved which slows the visa approval process; and, politicians misleading the public on immigration for unrelated political gain. The editorial also points to the unfortunately ill-informed populace as another reason why it has been difficult for meaningful progress on immigration policy, pointing to statistics which suggest Britons are, on average, considerably more xenophobic than other Europeans. This sure all sounds familiar, does it not? Americans should take no solace in the fact that our historical contemporaries are losing ground to developing economies as quickly as we are because of equally inferior immigration policy. Instead, nations like the U.S. and Britain must adapt to keep up with the new realities of the global economy. The full editorial can be seen here. Is what is good for the goose good for the gander? Can U.S. and British immigration policies be fixed with the same steps? Or must each nation take a different path to maintain pace in todayís evolving global economy?
