Economist Bryan Caplan makes a bold case for unrestricted immigration in this fact-filled graphic nonfiction. American policy-makers have long been locked in a heated battle over whether, how many, and what kind of immigrants to allow to live and work in the country. Those in favor of welcoming more immigrants often cite humanitarian reasons, while those in favor of more restrictive laws argue the need to protect native citizens. But economist Bryan Caplan adds a new, compelling perspective to the immigration debate: He argues that opening all borders could eliminate absolute poverty worldwide and usher in a booming worldwide economy--greatly benefiting humanity. With a clear and conversational tone, exhaustive research, and vibrant illustrations by Zach Weinersmith,Open Bordersmakes the case for unrestricted immigration easy to follow and hard to deny.… (meer)

The format of this book (graphic novel) is probably second only to catchy short videos with personal stories as a way to push an arbitrary agenda to people.

Unfortunately, while it makes some arguments, it also commits one big statistical/logical fallacy repeatedly: if 1 x A is good, then 100 x A will be 100x better than 1 x A. A lot of things are non-linear. Making an argument that the entire population of earth migrating to the US will produce effects which are just linearly estimated from current trends is insane. Aside from the changing marginal quality of immigrants as you go from the best to the average to the last (even within a given "educational level"), there are non-linear effects on society due to different proportions of immigrants.

Another area which is largely glossed over is the political consequence of immigration. "Low-education voluntary immigrants are only slightly left, and they don't vote very much anyway" isn't a convincing argument.

The assumption that the government will do X and Y together is also usually wrong -- often they just do X and then forget about the corresponding Y, so it's reasonable to oppose X even if you think X Y is better than no-X no-Y.

Due to statistics recording children of immigrants as citizens (due to birthright citizenship in the US), it's harder to identify total costs of immigrant offspring.

I respect the book for putting forth an argument (and in a particularly persuasive format), but it's not complete or convincing. ( )

Good breakdown of a complex topic. More politicians need to read this and realize how beneficial open boarders would be in so many respects. ( )

I can't really judge the content, not being an economist. But the presentation was very well done: The arguments were clear, with good rhethoric lines and arc, and the illustrations were pretty good, too. There was a fair bit of stereotyping going on, but I think that's more than fair on this topic: People's fears and concerns are based on stereotypes, so they are part of the discussion already, and need to be addressed.

Caplan makes a compelling argument for open borders. I have a few minor qualms here and there but overall I think it provides some very interesting evidence in an accessible way ( )

This well written -- and well illustrated -- argument for open borders is reasonable and intellectually convincing. Unfortunately, gut political issues like immigration are not usually decided by reason or intellect. The author of "The Myth of the Rational Voter" is surely aware of this, and one has to admire his courage in sticking to rationality. ( )
