The Economist Claims: Sending 1.2 Billion Unskilled Africans To Europe Will Increase World GDP

Tyler Durden's picture


The Economist ran a couple of articles promoting migration as good for the global economy.

 Professor Bryan Caplan argued that labour is the world’s most valuable commodity and its value depends on location. If borders were open, a world of free movement would be $78 trillion richer. Mexican labourers can expect to earn 150% more in the West. Unskilled Nigerians make even 1,000% more in Germany than in Africa. The value of an unskilled worker is so much higher in Europe that a Nigerian can make 1000 times as much in Germany, adding 1000 times more to global GDP. Because Western societies are more structured and organised than the Mexican or Nigerian, the unskilled worker can be more productive in a factory in Germany or a farm in the USA than in Africa. A taxi ride in Berlin is much more expensive and thus valued much higher than a taxi ride in Lagos, while the amount of work, driving a car for a while, is the same.

If The Economist expounds Professor Bryan Caplan’s view correctly, then the argument is plain idiotic. The Economist confuses countries with companies that are profit-oriented, and where people are disposable resources. Yet, countries are communities, and citizens do not usually expect their governments to merely maximize GDP. History teaches us that migration causes social unrest, disrupts social cohesion and ultimately the stability of the recipient nation. And even if we set aside these social or national considerations, the Economist’s reasoning is still false.

The whole argument breaks down on social security and the massive world oversupply of unskilled labour. Social security determines the minimum price of labour .

If there is abundance of unskilled workers, governments step in and buy or take out of the market the oversupply of labourers for a minimum price called social welfare. Thus, social security does not differ from setting a minimum price for milk. The consequence of a minimum milk price is that farmers will produce more milk than can be consumed. The surplus is then bought by the authorities and ultimately destroyed, or a milk production quota is imposed.

Moroccans and Turks in the Netherlands are labour migrants.

The Netherlands has no historical relation with either Turkey or Morocco. There is no colonial relationship whatsoever between these two countries and the Netherlands or another shared history.

In the most productive group aged 30-35 more than 30% of the Moroccans and 22% of the Turks receive social security benefit, but only 11% native Dutch.

The labour participation for Moroccan men aged 25-35 is a shocking 60%, whereas for the native Dutch it is about 90%. In the age group 50-55, nearly 50% of Moroccans and Turks receive social security while only 16% Dutch.

Labour migrants are a drain on the indigenous population rather than a relief.

It is clear that the Dutch labour market has a massive oversupply of unskilled third-world workers. Apart from social security, there are also intangible costs such as an increase in crime, and especially terrorism, both related to North African migrants.

Africa has 1.2 billion people that will double in the next 25 years, of which huge numbers are about to join European labour force in the coming decades. At the same time the highly educated and skilled western populations will decline, reducing the demand for unskilled labour even further. There is no chance that Europe can afford to keep its social welfare without enforcing a quota on migrants. And even if social security is dropped altogether, the European labour market will reach a situation where there are so many labourers that they become as worthless as they are in Nigeria. For the unskilled European working class it is tantamount to suicide to vote open borders advocates into office.

Interestingly enough, The Economist implicitly stated that Africans are not able to utilise their labour force themselves. Bringing the African population under European supervision failed during the very brief period of colonisation of Africa, and now the Economist wants to bring the Africans under European supervision by using open borders policy and moving the African population to Europe.

Does the Economist really suggest that white Europeans are the only ones who can solve Africa’s problems?

This is a Great Idea, then Europe can pay back 50 years of unpaid UN and Nato contributions they owe America. But back to reality, this will put them 78 Trillion in debt since everyone know that Africans are a burden to society and use more government benefits then Europeans

"I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive." ~ Barbara Lerner Spectre

"Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit...
The man of the future will be a mongrel.  Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian–Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals."Practical Idealism - by Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

When I read that title I swear the first thing that jumped into my head was "A fucking Jew is behind this train wreck." Africans won't even take a billion other Africans. 

Basketball would increase in popularity though.

I could go on but why bother. This is simply another Jewicide idea. (suicidal idea promoted by a jew)

 i remember thinking that kind of comment was crazy, but having seen what was done in Libya and the rest of The ME to open the floodgates; having read what Kalergi and Barbara Lerner Spectre have said, it doesn't seem crazy, anymore. This is definitely deliberate. Apperently, East Asia never got the memo, though, and it doesn't seem to have hurt them.

Read Kevin MacDonald's "The Culture of Critique" if you want an eye-opening history of the involvement of secular Jews in the destruction of Western Civilization.

There's a whole lot of hatred in those Jews for what they consider the "white race" (which they do not consider themselves a part of) and for Christianity.

Being raised as a Christian I was taught that they are still God's people and that Christians had a duty (and a fear of God's wrath) to protect them.

Now I see that there are practically no real Biblical Jews on the planet any longer. Almost all Jews in the world (and especially those attacking Western Civilization) are not bloodline Jews but are converts. Read Arthur Koestler's "The Thirteenth Tribe" and Shlomo Sand's "The Invention of the Jewish People" for histories of how pagans converted to Judaism for economic and political reasons.

It is ironic (hypocritical) that these Progressive, secular, worldly Jews claim to be descended from the Biblical Jews when their Talmudic law is so purely race and bloodline based that a person can only be considered if they come from a Jewish mother. The reason? If a gentile woman is married to a Jewish man, she may have had an affair with a gentile man and the offspring would therefore have zero "Jewish blood." This is all the proof we need that these converted Jews are completely racist in their thinking.

It also explains why they are at war with White Christians and why they see other races as tools they use in that warfare.

I used to think it was antisemitic hatred that led to such thoughts.

Now I see it is nothing more than accurate history and refusing to be used and destroyed.

I haven't read his book, although I have read some reviews and excerpts. I've gone through almost the same evolution of thought as you. I was finally forced to conclude, by preponderance of facts, that this view of Jews is not bigotry - it's simply REALITY.

Israel doesnt beleive it either - Apartheid Policies include eugenics for somali jews in Israel

if blacks cant manage themselves in their own environment why would massive numbers in the EU be any better when the social costs of 70 IQ are taken into effect ? - they are not educable at that level - so they cant participate in the economy effectively  - especially with artifical intelligence taking out the low skill mechanical functions

the real effect is in reducing the wages to subsistence level of the indigenous people -  as massive consumer economy is eliminated and as economies of scale cant be reached due to low volume of consumer purchases - all becomes more expensive in a downward spiral lowering GDP

these people are useless eaters "only" which is shown by the social costs of maintenance to include masssive police - as they see riches around them  -  they will never receive on  - TV / Shops / Houses / Countryside...........they will steal it / murder for it / riot for it!!!!


The NFL is about blacks wanting the Police to back off and not enforce the law - when this is protested by 100's of millions of blacks  in EU or the USA - all will become chaos as well as  politically correct protocols & speech which  lowers the efficiency of the decision process  - so the lower wages are negated as positive contribution

Africa is in perpetual Chaos because of the African IQ & Culture

American Blacks are in Chaos because of Black IQ & Culture


there are no solutions except segregation and eugenics

I am told there is increasing pressure in Korea to promote multiculturalism. TV shows, etc etc. 

I don't think east asia is immune from this, I just think they are next after Europe for the full on globalization treatment.

Blacks are flooding into southern china, for instance. China is curbing dissent by local Chinese. I hear Vietnam is also going full multiculturalism.

Suuure. We can pay with migrants, since they are worth so much! 

Now, the proposal does have some merit: If we replace all economics professors with unskilled, uneducated migrants, straight off the streets of some 3'rd word place then their innane rantings and "never failing to predict anything"-theories would be seen for what they are. The world would be a freer, more creative place once economics has been relegated to the same decision-making significance as eskimology. 

The best part is that only a few thousands of migrants would be needed!

Economic.ics is the study of people's behavior in an attempt to predict or explain it.

Economists use their knowledge to not predict but actually change outcomes. Social engineers.

How you doin`, stupid leftist useful idiot morons from The New Murkill-Nazi Banana Bundesrepublik of Germanistan, also known as Merkelistan :)) everything good around there, motherfuckers? You will be wiped out soon as a country and as a nation, it will be like you never existed. Believe me, t ewhole world will be better without these suicidal bunch of german euro-trash morons, where an old ugly childless bitch like that crazy Murkill just fucked-up the whole Western Europeistan. After Hitler you recovered as a nation, but after Murkill you will just disappear as a nation, motherfuckers. Do you still think this is a game for you? Everybody, I mean everybody in Eastern Europe hates the stupid-ass suicidal german krauts :)) this time you will go down for good, motherfuckers, you can bank on it. Just have a look at those loathing self-righteous psychopathic fuckers like Murkill, Heiko Maas, Siegmar Gabriel, and you realize they are beyond repair, thay can not be normal ever again, they are too fucked in the head to know what the fuck`s is going around them. First, that crazy bitch Murkill said that every low IQ jihadist savage fucker muzzie and even lowe IQ sandnigger can go to Germanistan, but surpise, after 3 milion of them showed up, the same childless bitch Murkill says that everyone in Europe should take in a number of them. Wait a minute, this is like you, the motherfucker moron Murkill-style-nazi says one day that he will shelter 100 jihadist muzzie and sandnigger, and after a few days he says to his neighbours that they should take in a more than a few of them. See the point, we are more than clever tahn you Murkill-style-nazis are, we know that 1+1=2, not 4 or 5. Remember, those who makes you accept fantasies, will make you commit atrocities. And that is that Anti-Christ of the old bitch Murkill. Last time when some idiots was cancellar like some 12 years, the whole Europe wnt up in flames, this time Germanistan will disappear in their own flames, motherfuckers, nobody wants to dir with you or for you, get it? Long story short, YOU GONNA GET GOT. You take in your own house a pack of savage hienas only if you are an insane suicidal maniac stupid leftist useful idiot globalist elitist shill, the result is that you will die, as Germanistan will be going down soon. And don`t forget Hungary hates you the most, you will be nuked soon by the USA, they will not let fanatical jihadist muzzies and low IQ sandniggers running around for much time in Western Europeistan. And after that, we will transform the whole no man`s land into a big Muzzie and Sandnigger Hunting Safari Park, that will be what we would call from now real fun, you get the message, stupid suicidal german krauts? :)) And ALOHA SNACKBAR to your fucked up german populace, the 15% who voted for AFD will live, the rest who voted for Murkill and Schultz will get executed on the spot and hanged on lampposts, `cause they are collabrators with the Murkill-style-nazi regime in Banana Republik of Germanistan. History don`t repeat itself, it rhymes, motherfuckers. You will go down, no matter what. Ah, scheisse, we are fucked so big, you could say. And believe us, you are more than fucked :))

The average IQ in Sub Saharan Africa is around 65. They are basically retarded. The notion they can replace Europeans in low skill jobs let alone contribute any real wealth is absurd. You'll be lucky if they're not raping, killing and stealing while they're on welfare.

Advocating the colonization of 1.2B Africans into Europe is tantamount to a declaration of war and attempted genocide.

The Globalists will be hanging from lampposts before we ever allow that to happen.

The econimist owned by Rothschilds promoting slave labor, brilliant. Let us imagine what Rothschild corporation can gain by ruining europes economy.

1- race wars

2- competion for jobs

3- lowering quality of products so china ( where they really invested their money) can produce cheap products from competting slave labor in china- brilliant.

4-"Africa has a large quantity of natural resources, including diamonds, salt,goldironcobalturaniumcopper,bauxitesilverpetroleum and cocoa beans, but also woods and tropical fruits. Much of its natural resources are undiscovered or barely harnessed."

Yeah no ulterior motive there for economist rothschilds....oh I forgot the non elites are too stupid to figure that out, we need people like them to herd us and inform us what's good for us...again not enough middle fingers to salute these " intellectuals" who did nothing but inherit their wealth then bought off corruptable politicans.

They are Locusts and should be dealt with as Locust are. If not, you will wake up penniless, homeless and starving in the civilization you created but they want to eat fully out.
