    Reform?

    "At one time or another, acceleration of population growth . . . has been sought by militarists in need of cannon fodder, by rulers in search of hegemonic expansion, by industrialists in want of cheap and docile labor, by ecclesiastical spokesmen in search of souls, and by land and other speculators hungering for unearned increment." Joseph J Spengler in Population and America's Future, 1975

    "Immigration reform is key for business growth, analysts says"

    Well, now, the article didn't make clear what the analysts had in mind by "reform," but it is reasonable to understand that they mean increased numbers, with a nod to security. The question to consider is how will increased numbers lower rents and housing prices, increase wages, leave more obs open for natives, and otherwise improve quality of life for the American middle class.

    Qui bono?
