1:30 p.m. Smith Lecture Hall (WB 206)
Dr. Ran Abramitzky, instructor of economics at Stanford University, will present "Streets of Gold: America's Untold Story of Immigrant Success."
Immigration is one of the most fraught, and possibly most misunderstood, topics in American social discourse. But in most cases, the things we believe about immigration are based largely on myth, not facts. In Streets of Gold: America’s Untold Story of Immigrant Success, Stanford Professor Ran Abramitzky uses the tools of modern data analysis to present new evidence about the past and present of the American Dream and debunk immigration myths fostered by political opportunism. This lecture is free and open to the public.
