About 13 percent of the US population is foreign–born, a figure not seen since the early decades of the 20th century. Today’s immigrants differ considerably from those a century ago, both in country of origin and education. This side trip will examine the economic impacts of immigration on native-born workers, firms and consumers, and on government finances as immigrants pay taxes and use services. The children of immigrants — born and raised in the destination country— often play quite different roles in the economy than was true of their parents.

Doug-YoungPresenter Bio: Doug Young is a retired faculty member from MSU. He holds a PhD in economics from the University of Wisconsin. Doug immigrated to Montana in 1977.
