@virgehall overall balance is clear - migrants contribution +ve short & longterm. Of course lots of variance in both migrants/natives

@jdportes @virgehall Exact opposite suggested by UCL study which put non EEA migration as net treasury cost (£100+ bn over 15 years).

@jdportes @virgehall This was case with very favourable assumption, for instance that public good costs borne by incumbents not newcomers.

@jdportes @virgehall Yes it doesn't really address that on balance immigration has been a net treasury cost post 1997.

@_coltseavers @virgehall If you want lower migration, fine: just accept it means higher taxes/worse public services.

@jdportes @virgehall UCL study (cited in article) has demostrated that migration has been a net treasury cost yet you assert the opposite.

@_coltseavers @virgehall I don't "assert". Both OBR & NIESR analyses show longterm fiscal implications. You don't like them. OK.
