    Default Immigration: opening our borders would make Australia richer

    Immigration makes us all better off by allowing people to reach their full potential.


    Worldwide, the best guess is that if all borders were opened and people could move where they liked, global income would double. By way of comparison the gains from removing barriers to trade such as tariffs amount to only a few per cent of global GDP.


    Immigration makes us richer. Without further immigration the proportion of the population aged 65 and older would swell from 14 to 28 per cent and the number of workers would shrink. Continued at present levels, immigration would hold the proportion at 22 per cent.

    Immigration is clearly better for the country or it wouldn't take place. Politicians don't do anything out of the goodness of their hearts.
