Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230341306, Hardcover)

The spread of the immigration points system worldwide shows that policymaking is multidimensional and interdependent. This book examines states' pursuit of global talent and the globalization of the "points system." It accounts for this pattern as a consequence of the diffusion process of learning. Confronted with opposing economic demands for human capital and political calls for restricting immigration, governments are attracted to the points system because of its ability to attenuate these competing demands. Through a comparative case study analysis of the United Kingdom and Germany, with references to the United States, this study examines the impetuses for and processes by which governments came to choose the points system.
