Immigrants Are Good for the Economy

Here's an interesting story from Bloomberg about immigrant-owned small businesses:

The study released today found that immigrants own 18 percent ofMoney  businesses with fewer than 100 people working for them, while U.S. residents born outside the country account for 13 percent of the nation’s population, based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey.


Foreign-born entrepreneurs owned 28 percent of small businesses in the leisure and hospitality fields, the largest percentage of any broad industry. Immigrants constituted a majority of small taxi, dry cleaning and gas station owners. They also made up 43 percent of hotel or motel owners and 37 percent of restaurant operators.

Here are three other interesting stories about immigrants, business and the US economy:
