Pia Orrenius and Madeline Zavodny: Foreign Stimulus

"For the past two decades, policy makers have tinkered on the margins of the immigration system, reacting to the latest crisis or political priority. Greater emphasis on work-based immigration as part of a coherent immigration process would go a long way to enhance our economy’s competitiveness and the nation’s well-being." - Pia Orrenius, a research officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Madeline Zavodny, a professor of economics at Agnes Scott College, are the authors of “Beside the Golden Door: U.S. Immigration Reform in a New Era of Globalization.”
