Immigration Conversation with Australian MP Andrew Leigh

This morning the PPI hosted a breakfast and conversation with special guest, Andrew Leigh. 

Leigh is an economist and Member of the Australian House of Representatives. He is also the Australian Labour Party’s Shadow Assistant Treasurer. In 2011, Leigh received the “Young Economist Award” from the Economics Society of Australia.  Leigh served as a PPI Fellow en route to earning a PhD in public policy from Harvard just over a decade ago.

He spoke on the topic, “Growth and Diversity: The Economics of Immigration in Australia and the United States.” Leigh believes the two countries have much to learn from each other about raising living standards amid rising ethnic diversity.
