Johan Norberg: Open borders – for immigrants as well pt 6/8
A imigração como impulsionadoras de reformas necessárias
I think that immigration makes the problems of our own welfare states so much more visible. Our regulated welfare states presupposes that one-size-fits-all. It doesn’t. And that is so much more obvious when people from a completely different culture are being subjected to it. For example, I am right now in the process of starting a company, but have a hard time understanding all the regulations and forms. In that case, how do you think a less well educated immigrant with just a little understanding of the language can do it? And many of our social security systems are not sufficiently linked to our own work and savings. That might work for a small homogenous population, steeped in protestant work ethic, but how does it work in a diverse population, with different views of moral and work?
Immigration makes a domestic reform and liberalisation agenda even more important.
