Governments are ignoring the real costs of migration

The big immigration debate is often the big obscurantism debate. The wool is pulled over our eyes and obtaining clarity is not easy. The vested interests in continued immigration are enormous - first and foremost, the migrants themselves who are seeking an escape from poverty and lack of opportunity at home.

US must be prepared to see China as an equal power

The West, the US especially, has got itself into a fretful mood over the rise of China. Quite unnecessarily so. The Chinese growth rate is slowing. As a BBC commentator said recently, reviewing this week's government-issued statistics, China will never hit double-digit growth again. Glitzy Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu and their like, where growth is still well over 10 per cent a year, make up only part of China's economy. Much of the country has an income per head more akin to Ecuador.
