THE ANTI-GROWTH CANDIDATE:

Trump's Visitor Ban Isn't Just Un-American. It's Bad for the Economy. (David Brown and Jordan Baum, August 24, 2016, Third Way)


Trump's ban on visitors to the U.S. would decrease U.S. GDP by $30.5 billion and cost the domestic economy 182,000 jobs in year one. GDP and job losses would then increase significantly each year the ban remains.

Those losses do not account for the further economic damage banning Muslim and other immigrants would cause. We also examine the implications of an immigrant ban by highlighting the economic contributions of the existing American-Muslim community, which makes an outsize contribution to GDP and job growth in the U.S.
