Comment: Economics of Deferred Action -
The Center for American Progress, founded almost a decade ago by Bill Clinton's White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, notes the top five economic benefits from the Deferred Action announcement. The Center suggests the effects will include widespread economic growth for all; a raise in wages for native-born workers; encouragement of education to help the workforce keep pace in the global economy; an increase in federal revenues; and, complementary capabilities to native-born workers. The Center for American Progress bills itself as an " independent nonpartisan educational institute" and that seems fair given the sources of information for the above propositions. The article linked below quotes statistics from a variety of government agencies, like the DOL and SSA, plus carries comments from all sides of the political spectrum from George W. Bush's Council of Economic Advisers to the libertarian Cato Institute to even Paul Krugman, the famously liberal New York Times columnist. After reviewing all the information, it is hard not to see a number of benefits to the Deferred Action announcement even beyond the ones suggested by the CAP. To read the full article, continue here.
