Today, two views of immigration’s economic impact grip the American public. At one end of the spectrum, the notion that “outsiders” displace Americans from jobs and reap more in government benefits than they contribute in taxes. And at the other end, the belief that immigrants add labor to the economy without weakening native-born employment, and hence contribute positively.

As this webcast clarifies, the competition and complementarity between immigrant and native-born workers makes the entire U.S. workforce more productive. Also watch to learn about how policymakers could improve immigration to better leverage the unique advantages of both immigrant and native-born workers.

Who should attend: Those with an interest in the economy, investing, leadership, and the economic climate of business.
