Debating Open Borders: Carl vs Caplan

Aporia Podcast | 24 November 2023 | 1h 17m | Listen Later | Podcasts | Spotify
Noah Carl and Bryan Caplan debate the merits of open borders. Covers the fiscal effects of immigration, the impact of migrants and immigration policies, assimilation and cultural differences in immigration, immigrants and IQ in First-World countries, cultural preservation and immigration considerations, immigration’s impact on politics, and open borders and immigration benefits. Draws on Caplan’s book Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration.

I’ve read and loved Open Borders so much that I bought it for my teenage daughter. But Jan Van De Beek’s evidence (yesterday’s post) poses a strong challenge. Yet, in a world of collapsing fertility, won’t all countries throw open their borders and compete for immigrants? See also other immigration posts.
