Introduction: Ralph Raico, Guest Editor

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

The question of immigration has become acute in virtually all Western nations, including the United States. Here, as elsewhere, leaders of movements to limit immigration, especially from the “Third World,” often combine this with uninformed attacks on the free market, particularly on international free trade. But there is no necessary connection between battling to curb immigration and rejecting such key elements of the free market as free trade.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
