The Economics of Immigration Reform
Immigrants are 30 percent more likely to start new businesses than native-born Americans, according to one Hamilton Project study. According to another study, every 100 additional foreign-born workers in science and technology fields are associated with 262 additional jobs for U.S. natives. As the debate over immigration reform heats up, statistics like this point to huge potential -- and perhaps a few pitfalls -- not only in the marketplace, but in media and marketing. Hear how immigration policy will impact how you build and who you do business with in the short and long term.
