Description

Most research on the effects of changes in the educational composition of immigration on the host nation’s economy has focused on how an increase in the supply side, more specifically the labor supply, affects domestic wages. This paper seeks to understand how the demand side is affected by immigrant’s educational composition, by looking at the impact on inflation. This is done through a review of previous immigration research, as well as a regression analysis between immigration and inflation. This paper seeks to understand if there has been a shift in the composition of immigrants into the developed world, and if and how that compositional shift has affected those nations’ economies.
