Beautiful stuff perhaps the clearest economic argument I ve ever seen and moving than expected I ve seen people dismiss it as narrowly economic people value than money ya know but this is stupid fully half the book is about morals and culture There are dozens of lovely little easter eggs in Weinersmith s art too eg Conspicuone Pecansumption icecreamThe arguments1 Closed borders lead to incredible suffering not just the obvious oppression of camps raids struggle and drownings but also the unnecessary perpetuation of poverty 2 He argues that it s a human rights issue If a foreigner wants to accept a job offer from a willing employer or rent an apartment from a willing landlord what moral right does anyone have to stop them These are contracts between consenting adults not welfare programs The regulation is an apartheid with comparatively little outcry and great popularity3 America had completely open borders until 1875 and comparatively free undocumented immigration until 1924 It did pretty alright4 Immigrants on average have been fiscally net positive Doing our best to isolate the effects moving to a rich country seems to multiply your productivity For a few reasons co operation a larger market for your work no tropical disease coastal trade I gain if you re young This model predicts trillions of dollars of gain from open borders If true this massively reduces global poverty5 Immigrants are on average culturally positive allowing the recipient country to select from the best of everything in the world The first generation are uite a bit law abiding than average natives Nowrasteh estimates that just one in seven million immigrants turned out to be a terrorist Assimilation is high usually complete within 2 3 generations Political externalities the idea that your good culture will be voted out by bad culture once you let immigrants vote have not in fact been seenResidual points The data is mostly from our current highly restricted high skill only immigration regime It s not clear which effects would change in the dramatically different world Caplan promotes though he does his best to look at saturation effects and the low skilled who are currently persecuted out For instance a large part of his cultural argument depends on the low skilled continuing to not vote as they haven t The biggest risk by far is the damage caused by irrational native backlash against foreigners This produces things like Brexit and the Jobbik and Austrian Freedom governments Chapter 6 addresses some of this by suggesting ways to make things unfair for the migrants limiting their welfare access entry tolls language tests slow naturalisation to mollify the local problems backlash and so protect people s right to move in the first place I glumly suspect this wouldn t work because much of the backlash isn t based on real effects and so can t be mollified by policy Indeed he notes that most of the suggested hobbles already exist in US law in some form and might have somewhat dulled anti immigration sentiment He sometimes implies that he d open borders in one big bang but this size of policy shift should basically never be done just out of epistemic modesty and reversibility His counter is that the magnitude of the gains is too large to be possibly less than zero It s mostly based on US data and US policy is the target which is completely fine but limits the inference This is sensible general theory general policy usually fail To my surprise he doesn t much emphasise the macropolitical benefits of immigration if people could just leave countries with terrible policies taking their taxes with them this would be a new and powerful check on government abuse Voting with your feet and governments actually trying to attract and retain people Though its evidence checks out as far as I can tell it s still a polemic like The Wealth of Nations before it As such it s simple too simple The Center for Global Development has a sadder euivocal summary congruent to the limits of social science No case study or academic paper can ever spell out what the effect of immigration is Asking this uestion has as little use as asking whether taxes are inherently good or bad The answer depends on what is taxed and what the revenue is spent on Those choices make the policy harmful or beneficial The same is true of migration

I ll preface this by saying that I ve been a regular reader of Zach Weinersmith s webcomic for years I would never have picked up a book like this normally but since he specifically asked his normal readers to help him out with it I preordered sight unseen because you have to support the creators whose work you enjoyHaving said that this is a strange book and I m not entirely sure who the audience is supposed to be Obviously Caplan is making an argument for open borders The crux of his argument is an economic one The developed world makes people productive he says so if we allowed an influx of people into the developed world they would produce with an ultimate net benefit of doubling the wealth of the entire worldThat s it reallyHe spends much of the rest of the book addressing the natural criticisms of open borders He argues that it would still be a net benefit for natives That cultural assimilation usually takes than one generation but it does happen That immigrants wouldn t actually vote much differently than citizens and even if they did politicians wouldn t listen to them anyway It s true but it s so strange that he frames it this wayOn the whole the arguments seem to be mostly with people on the rightward end of the political spectrum See the fact that he addresses concerns that immigration would lower the average American I citing studies that show south Asia Latin America and sub Saharan Africa are less smart than the rest of the world YikesArguments for immigration that I find compelling aren t even mentioned For example the moral imperative we have to support Central America countries that our foreign policies have largely destroyed Or the simple fact that immigration restrictions let big businesses exploit migrants without fear of legal repercussions Or the fact that global climate change largely precipitated by the emissions pollution and rapacious extraction of natural resources that we caused will only make conditions less livable in much of the world Caplan is an economist so most of his arguments are centered on economics But it makes for a pretty ghoulish work on the whole that speaks to people with already ghoulish opinions about an idea that seems even from a fairly liberal perspective pretty pie in the sky And that gets back to my audience uestion If he s essentially arguing with conservatives and libertarians using this economic logic what are the odds that those people are going to pick up a graphic novel with the title Open Borders at all Slim to zeroHe seems to address this himself towards the end by telling himself and his readers that part of the project is simply moving the Overton window for the immigration discussion Don t tell us that bro It makes it seem like you don t even really believe the message that you re peddling but are deploying it cynically for some other purposeI don t know The Weinersmith art is still good and there are some little SMBC style nuggets to be found here and there But the book isn t even really funny enough to make me overlook the major problems I had with the textThis is the problem about working with economists I guess
