The Pritchett Club

If you read Greg Mankiw’s blog, you know that (in between his daily textbook adverts) every few weeks he unilaterally inaugurates a new member into his “Pigou Club”.  Usually he does this when someone famous espouses carbon taxation.

I’ve decided it’s time for another Economics related club.  I hereby found the Pritchett Club, after Lant Pritchett.  The club will restrict its membership to enlightened individuals who realize that if rich countries allowed more open immigration policies, the gains to the world’s poor would be enormous.

Let me begin by accepting Bryan Caplan.  He blogged earlier today about a quick, effective fix for Haiti’s food shortage.

The Pope is also currently under consideration.
