What is an Immigrant Worth?

I will tell you again that there is only one natural incentive that is relevant in economics. That is self interest. The incentive to serve on the part of those elected is completely imaginary.

There are many reasons why immigrants come to the United States.  That is not the topic of the article. The concern here is what are immigrants worth to United States citizens who are actively drawing them in.

We can ignore the virtue signaling as in “See I am a good person, I want to open our borders to everyone seeking refuge or a better life.” That is all mush. People who virtue signal have no power to do anything and are too lazy to do anything that makes a difference. They have a vision of the world and in their mind that makes them superior and even better it makes others see them in a superior light, so they believe.

Immigrants are worth billions and billions of dollars to the elite who are billionaires and who dictate policy to your government. An immigrant from Syria may be poor but in the United States, he is a better market for goods and services than he would be in his old country. Countless dollars can be made by selling things to the poor and oppressed. It matters not if the average income of the country drops to close to zero. The shear numbers of a massive ignorant population guarantee astronomical profits to the billionaires who are determined to drag immigrants in.

To a level headed American, and immigrant is worth no more or no less than anyone else.

To the billionaire investor class, a massive uneducated population is a gold mine in terms of profit. What are immigrants worth? They are worth countless dollars to the upper class who are determined to draw them in.

As I am finishing this up, my wife Jean threw in the fact that billionaires could care less whether money comes to them through government by way of the immigrants or as part of the private sector. Benefits to the poor come out of the pockets of the middle class when government is involved. To the elite, it is all profit.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
