Comment: Immigration Helps Germany Win



Business Week reports that immigration is helping boost German economy just like it helped Germany win the World Cup.


Germany's triumphant World Cup team included players of Polish, Turkish, African, and Arab descent, showcasing the country's increasingly multi-ethnic complexion. What's less well-known is that a record flood of immigrants is also giving a big boost to the German economy. Over the past five years, Germany has surpassed Britain to become Europe's No. 1 immigration destination as foreign newcomers take jobs that otherwise would go begging… The influx is good news for Germany, which has Europe's oldest population and second-lowest birthrate after Monaco, making it harder and harder to fill jobs as workers retire.


Median age in Germany has risen to 43.7 years - a "median" German is nearly 7 years older than a "median" American. Influx of working age immigrants is helping Germany manage the economic problems caused by its rapidly aging population. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.

    of attendees ranging between 25-30 attendees in total per event
    in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that
    direct contact is established between the presenter and potential
    investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has

    sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which
    increases transparency for the potential investor.

    this service to convert as many possible investors without paying
    a single cent in commission or any relative fees as typically
    witnessed in the Beijing EB-5 industry.

  • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to
    marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of
    security placement.

  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that
    covers every notion associated with this service other than the

    destination.
