Does Immigration Boost Per Capita Income?
(), Sanne Hiller

Abstract: Using a cross-section of countries, we adapt Frankel and
Romer's (1999) IV strategy to international labor mobility. Controlling for
institutional quality, trade, and nancial openness, we establish a robust
and non-negative causal eect of immigration on real percapita income.
