Immigration Charity Prospect
By Bryan Caplan
Argentina officially has near-open borders. At least on paper, you only need an employer or family member to sponsor you. The country isn’t as quite First World, but with per-capita GDP around $15,000, Argentina would be a huge step up for most of the workers of the world.
Question: How hard would it be to set up a cost-effective charity to help sponsor the global poor for immigration to Argentina? Responses from GiveWell, the broader Effective Altruism community, and Argentina experts are especially welcome.
Inspired in part by Sebastian Nickel’s new Libertarian Effective Altruists Facebook group.
