the painful question of the "economic cost" of hosting refugees


very interesting article about research on the economic costs for hosting refugees. Unexpectedly, many studies predict no severe dangers for GDP or unemployment. On the long run (whatever that is), the economy is even likely to profit. I had hoped this before but it comforts me that some numbers seem to support my view. Yet, never forget, numbers are crunchable.
