Description - East-West Migration by Richard Layard

This sequel to "Reform in Eastern Europe" is a report on one of the most pressing issues for countries with economies in transition and their neighbours. Focusing on the problem of East-West migration, the authors delineate and promote the notion of European free trade and capital flows as a means of raising productivity and increasing worker stability in the East and of reducing income gaps between countries. As economists who have been deeply and consistently involved in the recent upheavals in the East, the authors are in a position to take an informed stance on the economic and social dislocations that are occurring. They first outline the problem and recommend that Europe begin to admit primary migrants and that the US increase its quota. They then look at migration statistics from previous eras to predict equivalent levels in the near future and take into account the long-run and short-run effects of migration in the US and Europe. They conclude with a discussion of "the best defense of all", economic progress, and lay out the necessary conditions for free trade, investment, and aid.
