A new survey has revealed that most Germans believe the influx of refugees will not provide an economic boost.
Only 16 percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement “the influx of refugees will result in more economic opportunities than problems for us,” according to the survey conducted by the Ipsos Institute on behalf of the Hamburg researcher Horst Opaschowski.
They’re right. Mass immigration is no longer an economic boon.
It may make a few people richer by creating a shortage of rental housing, or by depressing wages, it will likely ensure the creation of make work projects for bureaucrats.
But that’s about all, no one is building massive public works projects on a national scale requiring hordes of unskilled labour.
There are no frontiers to be settled in Germany, only urban slums to further crowd or create anew.
