Exodus




An insightful, expert foray into one of the most explosive issues of our time from a world-renowned economist

Mass international migration is a response to extreme global inequality, and immigration has a profound impact on the way we live. Here, world-renowned economist Paul Collier seeks to defuse this explosive subject. Exodus looks at how people from the world's poorest societies struggle to migrate to the rich West: the effects on those left behind and on the host societies, and explores the impulses and thinking that inform Western immigration policy. Migration, he concludes, is a fact, and we urgently need to think clearly about its possibilities and challenges: it is not a question of whether migration is good or bad, but how much is best?
