Open Borders and EE

Guest post at the Open Borders blog here leveraging EE arguments in favor of dropping immigration restrictions.

Money quote:
any potential exploitation introduced by a keyhole solution will enter immigrants’ decision calculus; those that still elect to come do so with the understanding that life after migration beats their alternatives at home. Nobody is being tricked here. If they choose to come, it’s because it beats the alternative. Forcing someone to accept a relatively worse alternative to satisfy a sense of moral smugness is immoral.
I agree.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
