Charter Cities in Prospect

+ Brandon Fuller

We know from history that the competitive pressures created by migration can boost economic growth. But strong opposition to immigration in the world’s richest economies prevents many people from moving to better systems of rules. Charter cities bring the good systems of rules to places that would welcome migrants. Indeed, charter cities offer the only viable path for substantial increases in global migration, while lessening the contentious political frictions that arise from traditional migration flows.

Paul writes about charter cities in the February edition of Prospect. An ungated version of the article is now available.
