@sofia Where did you take that 'violence' thing from? He's saying he doesn't support open borders for the primary reason of importing cheap labor.
@hyperalp and of course: leaving people the free choice where to live is not "importing" them. people aren't commodities and states should not be able to buy and sell them.
@cjd "helping the economy" is a bit unclear, but i guess it often comes down to GDP (or rather GWP), which famously doesn't cover all value produced.
i don't think economics is about finding the right policy that helps the state make maximum GDP paperclips out of us, or any metrics. it's just about making sense of how societies (can) use resources.
