Thinking the Unthinkable PDF

Nick Harris

There have been poor countries and rich countries since countries first began, but only in the 20th century - the century of nationalisms and ethnic cleansings - have controls been implemented to stop movement between them. The argument for immigration controls stems from the belief that richer countries will be flooded, invaded, swamped by a tidal wave of migrants, and leading to increased unemployment amongst the native population. Quite simply, this is not true. Immigrants do the jobs that most native workers do not want or cannot do.

Nigel Harris argues that we should bring all barriers down and shows exactly how and why immigration is the lifeline of the developed worlds economy, using examples from all over the world to prove how immigration makes both the rich and the poor richer. Immigration, argues Harris, may also be the final safeguard against racism, nationalism and intolerance.

Thinking the Unthinkable dramatically challenges the rhetoric which has informed much of the debate on immigration - even amongst many liberals. It makes an original, controversial and highly important contribution to one of the most charged and topical issues of our times.

Nigel Harris makes an important argument, with compelling evidence, on the side of freedom and of common sense. This book deserves to be widely read--especially by politicians of all parties.
