dc.description.abstractThis paper outlines a set of economic criteria to assess an immigrant receiving country?simmigration policy from three perspectives. These three perspectives include the residentpopulation, the immigrant and the sending country viewpoints. An expanded version of JulianSimon?s financial transfer model which includes employment and capital externalities isdeveloped to assess the efficacy of an immigration policy from the resident?s viewpoint.Next, Chiswick?s earnings ?catch-up? model is expanded in an employment dimension tocreate an assessment criterion for the resident immigrant population. Finally, acomprehensive reverse transfer criterion is outlined to provide an assessment criterion forsending regions. These criteria are then applied to European and North America immigrantreceiving countries.en_US
