This article from The Economist puts the finger on the painful question of the "economic cost" of hosting refugees.

Moral and financial, and social potencial


There are gap between tha moral and financial and social potencial of European countries. Even the richest countries can not give place to all refugees.

Now the line between the refugees is, that who flees from war, and who migrates because of economic situation. I think that there is no big difference, if somebody flees from war (fasd dying) and poverty (slow dying).

But Europe can not solve the problem.

Actually the problem hurts people, refugees and Europe, so the solution

My opinion is:
1. Syria and Libya should not be kept as a whole country. If the people can not live together, let them make to live separate. so the reason for civil war might be a lot less.
2. The refugees must try to build society suitable for tem, as their
dream is to have te life standard like in Germany, make it. Germany
has work on it for decades.
3. Their rules has to be tolerated in
the countries of origin, when they are in Europe, they have to obey
the rules of an European country they get inside.

So Europe has to work to stop the war, Europe has to help them to build better societies. That is what Europe can do.
