Dear Log,

«The global figure for remittances [i.e., money that someone sends back to their family in their home country] should make western political parties think before they deny outsiders the access that can transform lives back home. At the end of the 1980s, the World Bank reckoned that $65bn in earnings by foreign workers went back to their countries of origin - about $20bn more than the sum of aid from wealthier to poorer countries. In 1998, the figure was $52.8bn, again significantly higher than official aid flows. Perhaps the time has come for liberal immigration and asylum policies?»
