''Sanandaji vilseleder läsarna i sin bok om invandring''/''Snandaji mislead the readers of his book on immigration''

There is an extensive economic research literature on immigration and crime. Two of the international Authorities are Brian Bell (Oxford University) and Stephen Machin (LSE).   Sanandaji also refers to these two researchers with a quotation to give support to what he calls the first-order factor. But citing the text says that the social and economic cost of crime (in general) are usually estimated as high, and that each link between immigration and crime must be taken very seriously. But what Sanandaji carefully avoids mentioning is that Bell and Machin’s research indicates that the migration effect on crime is not very large (source 3).

Adding a piece to the productivity puzzle: Management practices

Article by Nicholas Bloom, Erik Brynfolfsson, Lucia Foster, Ron Jarmin, Megha Patnaik, Itay Saporta Eksten and John Van Reenen

Disentangling the relationship between management practices and productivity has been hampered by the absence of large sample data across plants and firms. This column exploits a new survey covering US manufacturing to show that management practices vary both among and within companies. Furthermore, management practices are just as important for productivity as a number of other factors associated with successful businesses, such as technology adoption.
