Feb 26, 2016

Robert Shiller, a 2013 Nobel Laureate in Economics says

‘Under today’s haphazard and archaic asylum rules, refugees must take enormous risks to reach safety and the costs and benefits of helping them are distributed capriciously . It does not have to be this way. Economists can help by testing which international rules and institutions are needed to reform an inefficient and often inhumane system.’
