Economist- Open Future Festival New York

Despite the hysterics in Europe and America, the West still accepts only a small fraction of the world’s most vulnerable migrants. If there is a moral case for rich countries to help those beset by war, persecution or economic duress, how can they do so without jeopardising their own democracies? Would opening borders make the world richer? Or would the privileged be better positioned to capitalise from such an opportunity, further widening the global wealth gap?

Julissa will join a panel with Linda Sarsour, and Michael Clemens to discuss.
