The presentation will examine the longer-term impact of migration on the GDP per capita of receiving advanced economies. Addressing carefully the risk of reverse causality, Florence Jaumotte will illustrate whys and wherefores of immigration increases the GDP per capita of host economies, mostly by raising labor productivity. Both high- and low-skilled migrants contribute, in part by complementing the existing skill set of the population. Finally, the gains from immigration appear to be broadly shared.
