Breitbart -- 'If in Doubt, Treat Them as a Minor': European Body Orders End of Migrant Age Tests
'The Council of Europe has spoken out against performing medical tests on migrants to determine their age, claiming youths could be “frightened and unsettled” by the process. -- In a report published Wednesday on age tests, the children’s rights committee of the council said unless there is evidence that the person is an adult, asylum seekers claiming to be under 18 should “be given the benefit of the doubt and presumed to be a child”. -- ... Earlier this month, the Afghan asylum seeker on trial for the rape and murder of a medical student in Germany admitted he lied about his age, explaining that he pretended to be a child because “the situation is better” for migrants claiming to be under 18. -- In Sweden, medical tests to assess migrants’ ages — which were brought in following two murders by “unaccompanied minors” who turned out to be adults — revealed that the vast majority of migrants in disputed cases are over 18. -- Testing 1,481 self-declared children in an assessment that involved an MRI of the knee joint and an x-ray of wisdom teeth, the country’s National Board of Forensic Medicine reported that 86 per cent were adults, and had lied about their age.'

Isabel Wilkerson – The Warmth of Other Suns
In a story of hope and longing, three young people set out from the American South during different decades of the 20th Century en route to the North and West in search of what the novelist Richard Wright called "the warmth of other suns."

Ida Mae Brandon Gladney, George Swanson Starling and Robert Joseph Pershing Foster are among the six million African-Americans who fled the South during what would become known as the Great Migration, a watershed in American history. This book interweaves their stories and those of others who made the journey with the larger forces and inner motivations that compelled them to flee, and with the challenges they confronted upon arrival in the New World.

Anonymous Conservative -- Danes In The Midst Of Low-Tech Jihad
'This is but a small fraction of Europe’s future, when the Apocalypse hits: "Thousands of incidents involving loosened wheel bolts on cars, large rocks or cinder blocks thrown from highway overpasses, and thin steel wires strung across bicycle paths meant to decapitate unsuspecting cyclists, is spreading a growing sense of horror among the Danes. -- In almost all cases, the perpetrators have turned out to be from MENAP countries (Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan). -- In the latest development of what has been characterized as “massive low-tech jihad“, gangs of migrants and refugees of Arab or North African descent are now shooting innocent people at random in the capitol city of Copenhagen, placing in danger the lives of both locals and visitors to this popular tourist city… -- Danish police now warns all men between 17 and 25 years of age to avoid public spaces in Copenhagen." -- And that doesn’t even look at the rapes: "Since the self-proclaimed Conservative party Venstre (meaning “Left”) with their slogan “Denmark’s Liberal party” took power in June 2015, the number of rapes reported to the police has soared by a shocking 196 percent, according to the Danish state’s bureau of statistics. -- This rise in rape attacks coincides with the liberal government’s opening of Danish national borders to refugees that primarily are from Islamic countries." -- You don’t like this. I don’t like this. But the fact is that right now the risk/reward ratio that the amygdala relevance-weighs is not on the side of a pogrom, and that is all that determines if a pogrom happens. -- Regardless of our taste for it, all of this has Danish K-men sitting fuming. And as they fume, their amygdalae are growing connections, tying leftists to a rage even Samson could not imagine. When the risk/reward ratio shifts, and it will, that will only fuel the brutality of the pogrom. If you want justice for traitors in the end, all of this is a necessary part of the process. -- I would not want to be a leftist when that ratio shifts, for all the gold in the world. -- Until then, everyone needs to begin exercising their situational awareness, and thinking in terms of how they would attack themselves, and then trying to prevent the attacks in the event they come. Trust me, you want to live to see the show that is coming at all costs. -- Truth be told that is probably a great warm up for the chaos of the Apocalypse.'

Who Emigrates From Denmark? – LaborEcon
Ilpo Kauppinen, Panu Poutvaara, and I have just finished a paper that examines the selection characterizing emigrants from Denmark, one of the richest and most redistributive European welfare states.

The paper makes a neat theoretical contribution. It derives the conditions that determine whether the skill distribution of the emigrants stochastically dominates (or is stochastically dominated by) the skill distribution of the stayers. Because the rewards to skills in Denmark are low (relative to practically all possible destinations), the model predicts that the emigrants will be positively selected, and that the skill distribution of the movers will stochastically dominate that of the stayers.

Our analysis of administrative data for the entire Danish population between 1995 and 2010 strongly confirms the implications of the model. Denmark is indeed seeing an outflow of its most skilled workers. And that is one of the consequences that a very generous welfare state must learn to live with.

The paper is forthcoming in the Economic Journal.
