Immigration


The Daily Mail is off on one again with immigration.

Here are a few statistics:

  • This country has the highest ratio of university degrees per capita in the world.
  • It produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation in the world - by a large margin.
  • It has the highest number of scientists and technicians per capita in the world - by a large margin
  • It has the highest number of PhDs per capita in the world.
  • It has the highest number of physicians per capita in the world.
  • It has the largest number of startup companies per capita in the world. 
  • It has the largest number of NASDAQ listed companies outside of the US and Canada
  • It is also the largest immigrant-absorbing nation in the world, per capita.

That country is Israel - a nation founded on immigration from all four corners of the globe.

Yes, it has had its problems with immigration and assimilation, but it has innovative policies to manage immigration.

America too was founded on immigration, as were Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

The key seems to be assimilation, not ghettoisation or multiculturalism, which sets immigrants apart.
