Tyler Cowen

If businesses have this liberty to behave selfishly, why do not governments?
I assume he means the "nation" looking out for itself rather than the individuals in government. This also assumes that free immigration does harm the nation which is contested in the economist article I linked to below.

In the end I agree though, even if immigration does cost a country something, it's benefits to others are huge. A comparable lump sum of aid (cost wise) will probably have smaller benefits.
