A very compelling conversation on FT Alphachat with Leah Platt Boustan and Margaret Peters on immigration, and economics, with the benefit of a historical context.

Including observations on ways to asses assimilation (like naming of kids, which costs nothing but tells a lot), the context of automation (in certain clusters of agricultural states), and the surprising effect of a sudden influx or halt of immigration on local economies.
