Notably, after 15 years about 3 million individuals had migrated to Germany. The author then analyzes that inflow on wages and employment rate. He found that there was a replacement effect of 3.1 for every ten immigrants who got a job. However, there was no impact on the relative wages.

Ottaviano, G. I., Peri, G., & Wright, G. C. (2010). Immigration, Offshoring and American jobs (No. w16439). National Bureau of Economic Research.

This article examines the number of jobs Americans have lost because of offshoring and immigration.

The authors use the Rossi-Hanberg model to augment and include heterogeneous productivity. The model reveals that while cheap offshoring decreases native shares among less skilled labors, inexpensive immigrations do not, but diminishes offshore jobs.

The study found that an inflow of immigration by one percent in the city increases the house rents by one percent.
