The issue of migration in the economic discourse of Germany in the post-war period

TERRA ECONOMICUS, , Vol. 11 (no. 2.2),
p. 137-141

Mass immigration to the Federal Republic of Germany in the second half of the 20th century became one of the most important events in the contemporary economic history of the country. The Federal Republic for the first time faced such a phenomenon as arrival and rooting of immigrants from Middle East, North Africa and Southern Europe. The interest in such aspects of the problem is caused by the search of solutions to economic problems which appear before Germany and the European Union countries.
