As immigration of low skilled workers to Western countries has increased, it has become increasingly important to understand its effect on natives’ situation on the labour market. In their article "Immigration and native investment in human capital", Marianne Røed and Pål Schøne look at the effects of immigration on the incentives for natives to invest in human capital.
