Immigration is a benefit, not a cost. Prosperity and innovation are fueled, not undermined by diversity. To some, this is self-evident. 360: Prosperity explores the economics of inclusion. How are newcomers contributing to national economies? Do our systems block or facilitate their progress and creativity? What is the relationship between becoming a citizen and the individual’s economic contributions? The immigrant/new citizen entrepreneur is little understood. Can new language and new concepts help explain the good business of diversity?
In the 21st century, the vast majority of humans live in cities. How are the economies of our cities being transformed by newcomers? Are urban centres able to keep pace with so much change?
