#DevTalks: Mobility and Economic Outcomes in the Age of Mass Migration

Leah Boustan, Professor of Economics at Princeton University, discusses her work, including her new book Streets of Gold: America’s Untold Story of Immigrant Success, on the mass migration from Europe to the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The discussion also addresses the prevailing narratives about the effects of migration and what that might suggest for policy design and debate.​​

Growth Lab research manager Nikita Taniparti moderated a discussion with Prof. Boustan on September 21, 2022 at Harvard Kennedy School.
