October 29, 2020, Video: "What does entrepreneurship among migrants look like in the United States and in other countries? Are migrants more entrepreneurial? These are issues discussed at the webinar Swedish Schumpeter Lecture, held by Harvard professor William Kerr. In Kerr’s latest book The Gift of Global Talent: How Migration Shapes Business, Economy & Society (2018) he explores the global race for talent and how countries and businesses compete for high-skilled migrants. The book reveals that immigration has changed American innovation, reshaped the economy through the emergence of talent clusters and affected society as a whole. Kerr argues that the United States, and the world, can get more out of global talent flows with sensible reforms."
