Personally, I think when Japan is faced with immigration Vs. lower economic prosperity, they will reluctantly vote for immigration. However, Japanese policy-makers are right to be cautious to avoid the disastrous policies of many European countries. It’s fine for economists to trumpet the economic gains from immigration but there are social costs too.

Thoughts?

One response

  1. The Japanese should learn from Singapore which retains its policy of keeping the Chinese majority at 75% of the total population leaving 25% for everyone else.

    Secondly, only very bright or employed people are allowed in and people who make trouble are quickly deported.

    Drug barons and other miscreants, illegal immigrants and other undesirables of the kind Europe seems to be keen on, are respectively put to death or not allowed into the country in the first place.
    As Dr Alf says immigration has social consequences and it is the job of Governments to make sure they are good ones.
