The paper "Effects of Immigrants on Australia Economy" is a good example of a macro & microeconomics case study. The economic effect of immigration has been intensively debated and studied; however, the debates are anchored on ill-informed perceptions. Immigration is a feature of the cultural, social, and economic life in many countries; however, the profile of the immigrant population may vary considerably. In one aspect, it may be as a result of the variety of the source of the immigrant. It is assumed by most Australians that immigrants deny them jobs.

However, there are scholars who have countered that argument by claiming that, although the immigrants add to the pool of the supply of labor, they nevertheless contribute to the economy by consuming, and therefore, create demand for goods whose production adds the demand for labors. The research proposal's aim is to explore the question of what kind of contribution immigrants make to the Australian economy. Introduction The economic effect of immigration has been intensively debated and studied; however, the debates are anchored on ill-informed perceptions. These perceptions can lead to unmitigated public antagonism against the immigrants.

The negative perceptions risk jeopardizing genuine efforts to adopt immigration policies that would guide the demographic and economic challenges that face many economies. Immigration is viewed as a feature of the cultural, social, and economic life in many countries, however, the profile of the immigrant population may vary considerably. In one aspect, it may be as a result of the variety of the source of the immigrants. For instance, in Europe, the people enjoy unrestricted movement, while in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, managed immigration labor plays a significant role in the development of the economy.

In these countries, the immigrant population sources also feature family as well as humanitarian immigration. Regardless of its source, immigration has significant impacts on the host societies.
