Title:Native Welfare Losses from High Skilled Immigration PDF Logo
Authors:Kemnitz, Alexander

Series/Report no.:Dresden discussion paper in economics 16/07
Abstract:This paper explores the effects of high skilled immigration to a host country with unionized low skilled labor and an unemployment insurance scheme. We show that such immigration can create a negative immigration surplus due to adverse effects on low skilled employment, provided that the elasticity between high and low skilled labor is high as empirical evidence suggests.
