We know it doesn’t work, but we’ll continue with it anyway

A few years back, the British research group Migration Watch UK shown that immigration raises total GDP but doesn’t increase GDP per person. In other words high levels of immigration don’t benefit the majority of citizens.

Now The  Australian Productivity Commission has admitted the same thing.

Unfortunately though, our elected representatives don’t want to listen to reason. In today’s democracy, the views of liberal activists and businesses that benefit from immigration trample over the interests of the disgruntled majority.
