IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: RONALD COASE - ECONOMIST

Rate this Entry
Coase

2007 marked the 70th anniversary of the publication of British-born Professor Ronald Coase's landmark paper "The Nature of the Firm" which established the field of transaction cost economics. 54 years later Coase would win the Nobel Prize in Economics  "for his discovery and clarification of the significance of transaction
costs and property rights for the institutional structure and
functioning of the economy."



I know Professor Coase more for his 1961 paper "The Problem of Social Cost" which set out was is now known as the Coase Theorem. The paper set out a new field of law and economics and when Professor Coase joined the University of Chicago Law School faculty three years later, he established the school as the leading institution in the world for the economic analysis of law.



I had the privilege of attending law school at the University of Chicago and Professor Coase's scholarship has had an ongoing influence in the way I look at law including immigration law. At 97, by the way, Ronald Coase is still going strong and continuing his research. I hope folks are one day able to say the same about me.

    This is all very good but with the growing Hispanic lobby, and especially their successful efforts at killing proposed EB legislation and recent attempts to add EB immigration to Omnibus bill, I don't think the climate in the US is very encouraging to such people to immigrate any more. In fact, I think this would be impossible in the near future. The immigration debate is always going to be between increasingly radicalized nativist fractions and Hispanic groups who want to legalize all illegals and to increase family based immigration.

    There is no distinction between high-skilled and illegal or family-based immigration, and the Hispanic groups want to keep it that way so they can monopolize the immigration debate. The corporations that used to lobby for high-skill labor have found other ways (e.g. moving to Canada, outsourcing, etc.), and they seem to be interested mostly in H-1B visas. It doesn't seem there is anyone to fight for high-skilled immigrants (maybe Immigration Voice but they haven't been very successful so far). I'm starting to lose hope.

    You may be surprised, but at least some of the "antis" support skilled immigration. They'd like nothing better than to eliminate the family, refugee and diversity programs while supporting a larger skilled immigration program than what exists today.

    Of course, they also want to do it in a way that increases white/European immigration. Hope this provides some context.

    the fruits of labor and patience are sweet. in times like this, things will change when the problem comes to a head. meanwhile preparing the ground is very important. that's where iv's major contribution may have been so far.

    What IV is doing is great.

    As someone else pointed out, the fact that EB relief is opposed by "pros" to push for CIR, and yet DREAM gets debated should be an eye opener. We saw the attitude of some of these "pros" right here.
