1. Comment: Fertility And Immigration - A fascinating article in
a leading conservative periodical The Weekly Standard
points out the nexus between fertility rates and immigration.
Fertility rate is the average number of children born to a woman
over her lifetime. When the fertility rate is above 2.1 the
population of the country grows, and when it is below 2.1 the
population of the country shrinks--that number is called the
replacement fertility rate. The connection between immigration
and fertility rate can be most clearly seen where we have de
facto open borders with a US trust territory:
"When a country's fertility drops below replacement, people tend
to stop emigrating. Consider Puerto Rico. In 1955, Puerto Rico's
fertility rate was 4.97. Over time, Puerto Rican fertility
diminished. By 2000, it had dipped to 1.99. For 2010, it is
estimated to be 1.65. During this same period, emigrating from
Puerto Rico to the United States became easier, and while the
economic situation in Puerto Rico brightened somewhat, it did not
improve dramatically. Yet the number of Puerto Ricans moving to
America during that span plummeted: from 80,000 in 1955 to just
3,800 in 2008."
Often, the discussion in the US on immigration policy is focused
on "pull" factors, such as employment, verification, quotas, etc.
However, "push" factors have historically been the main
determinant of migration. Mexico's fertility rate has fallen from
5.3 in 1980, to 3.61 in 1990, and then to 2.75 in 2000. It is now
falling below 2.1, the replacement value--and the rest of Latin
America is not far behind. We should expect the population flows
out of Latin America to dry out over the next two decades, and
the American economy will have to look elsewhere to satisfy its
unquenchable thirst for more workers. For guaranteeing a healthy
and growing American economy in the years to come, CIR is an
urgent necessity.

    Rupert Murdoch has reportedly come out in favor of an immigration overhaul, including a path to legalization for some illegal immigrants. Does that mean we will be seeing less of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and other anti-immigrant demagogues on Fox News? It will be interesting to find out.
