Is America still the land of opportunity? Does immigrant success come at the expense of the native-born? To probe these important questions, the Adam Smith Society hosted a conversation on Wednesday, September 14, at 8:00 p.m. ET, for a virtual discussion with economists Ran Abramitzky and Leah Boustan on their new book, Streets of Gold: America’s Untold Story of Immigrant Success. An installment of our Readers’ Roundtable series, this was an off-the-record, closed Zoom call with the authors.

The Adam Smith Society Readers’ Roundtable is a virtual quarterly book club exclusively for Adam Smith Society members who want to dive deeper into some of today’s most insightful and influential books on free market ideas and public policy.
