Growth was caused by technology and not population. The NAS already disproved the idea that low-skill immigration is a fiscal positive. Harvard’s Borjas found no significant correlation: “In fact, the slope of a regression that relates the rate of change in GDP to the net migration rate is 0.008 (with a standard error of 0.014), while the respective coefficient in the per-capita growth regression is -0.010 (0.012).” Immigration and gluts of third world labor have been the MAIN FORCE reducing productivity growth and innovation. High wages were a pivotal reason for the Industrial Revolution. A Census survey of 3.5 million homes showed that three-quarters of STEM graduates weren’t in STEM jobs. Men have been leaving the labor force since mid-last century. Get a clue.
