I was interviewed about this by Democracy Now!
I was interviewed on BBC World TV News on 28 August
Paul Collier, an expert on African economies, has written a poorly researched book on immigration, Exodus, that is full of holes, as Michael Clemens pointed out in his review in Foreign Affairs.

An excellent pamphlet by Jeremy Cliffe, The Economist’s new Bagehot columnist, explains how a number of long-term trends are likely to create a cosmopolitan liberal majority in Britain. This poses big challenges, and big opportunities, for existing political parties. I wrote a response to the pamphlet for Policy Network and argued in CapX that while Labour might seem best-placed to benefit, there was also a big opportunity for liberal Conservatives.
