Envoy Conversations: ‘Streets of Gold: America’s Untold Story of Immigrant Success’ with Authors Leah Boustan and Ran Abramitzky
In this session of our Envoy Conversations virtual event series, Envoy CEO Dick Burke will speak with authors Leah Boustan and Ran Abramitzky. The group will discuss the authors’ groundbreaking research on the intergenerational immigrant journey in the U.S. and connect historical immigration trends to the myths and policies that consume today’s debate.
Immigrants exhibit an immediate impact upon arriving in the U.S., but the long-term success of immigration overtime is a phenomenon best measured intergenerationally. Streets of Gold: America’s Untold Story of Immigrant Success observes and analyzes over a century of immigrant contribution in the U.S., from the Ellis Island generation to the most recent groups of immigrants entering the U.S. today.
