Michele Wucker talked about her book Lockout: Why America Keeps Getting Immigration Wrong When Our Prosperity Depends on Getting It Right, published by PublicAffairs. In her book Ms. Wucker argues that the growth of the American economy depends on immigrant labor. Ms. Wucker explains that while America usually reaps most of the benefits of globalization, many people, who she descibes as “the best and the brightest” throughout the world, no longer see the country as the only place to secure their financial futures. She responded to questions from members of the audience. close
