David Card (Economics, UC Berkeley) will discuss the economic impact of immigration on American workers, including the question of whether unskilled wages have been lowered through increased competition. Prof. Card is a leading figure in labor economics, whose highly influential work has addressed a wide range of topics, including immigration, minimum wage laws, unemployment, and economic and racial inequalities. This is the second in a pair of visits by eminent economists on "The Economics of the Era of Donald Trump," the first by Gordon Hanson on March 20.
