Borderless Economics

I came across a fascinating interview with Robert Guest, the Economist's business editor and author of "Borderless Economics: Chinese Sea Turtles, Indian Fridges and the New Fruits of Global Capitalism". He discussed why immigrants liked America and how Chinese and Nigerian diaspora did business across the globe. He also mentioned how difficult it was for a Japanese housewife to sponsor a foreign nanny whereas a night club owner could easily bring in an "entertainer in a short skirt" to come work in his night club. I thought it was a very great interview.
