Since I teach immigration law, I try and follow some of the recent literature on the subject. The law and economics papers written by law professors even these days are still painfully naive (sorry about that). There is lot of new interesting stuff on individual preferences etc. Some of the discussion papers can be found at the IZA web site in Germany. This brings me to a still unresolved issue in law and economics scholarship. That is, very few people (if any) seem to havve training or knowledge of international trade and finance. Consequenly, when they write on international trade issues that may affect say, immigration, writers will simply use antiquated models such as the vintage 2.2.2 H:O model, seemingly unaware of the development of the field since 1980 or so. I shall continue this another time.
