Restoring full passport and security checks between European Union (EU) nations would be more cost effective than allowing the migrant crisis to continue indefinitely, a German economic institute has said.
The Munich-based Ifo institute said the reinstating border controls could reduce the EU’s economic output by 0.19 to 0.47 per cent each year, equivalent to €26.65 to €65.8 billion.
However, Gabriel Felbermayr, head of Ifo, said that these costs would be “just a small part of the amount that would be caused by uncontrolled mass immigration.” …
One of the countries that has been worst affected by the ongoing migrant crisis is Sweden, which will likely need to spend around 600 billion kroner to fund last year’s immigration levels.
