Shocking Immigration Fact of the Day


“Indian-born residents of the U.S. are four times as likely to have a graduate degree as the native-born and their median income is 16% higher than the median income of the native-born. A population that is only 0.1% of the population of India has aggregate income that is 10% of Indian national income.”

Desai, Mihir A., Devesh Kapur, and John McHale. 2002. “The Fiscal Impact of High Skilled Emigration: Flows of Indians to the U.S.”

    I seldom leave remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here
    Shocking Immigration Fact of the Day | unsettling economics.
    And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these remarks come across like coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
