Multe chestii sunt ignorate... Assessing the Fiscal Costs and Benefits of A8 Migration to the UK CHRISTIAN DUSTMANN, TOMMASO FRATTINI, and CAROLINE HALLS FISCAL STUDIES, vol. 31, no. 1, pp. 1–41 (2010) 0143-5671 http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~uctpb21/Cpapers/D ... ls2010.pdf (paginile 29-30 pentru concluzii) ... All this paints a very positive picture of A8 immigration to the UK – one of highly educated, young people, entering the UK predominantly to work, with subsequent positive net contributi ons to the tax system. The analysis also suggests that the labour market situation of immigrants substantially improves with time in the UK, in terms of both wages and labour force attachment. ... Above all, our study shows that A8 immigrants’ receipt of government expenditures, in terms of benefits and other transfers, is substantially lower than their share of population, so, on balance, A8 immigrants have made a significant net contribution to the UK fiscal system. This net fiscal contribution persists in even the most conservative scenario for tax receipt and expenditure allocation. Thus, from the fiscal point of view, A8 immigration has not been at all a burden on the welfare system but has actually strengthened the fiscal position.
