Here And There with Dave Marash

There are more than 60 million people in migration in the world today…more than ever before.  Why?  Demetrios Papademetiou, founder of the Migration Policy Institute says rising economic and social inequality, political tyranny and criminal violence are all partly to blame.  And then there are rising literacy and access to the Internet.  These days, almost everyone who is unhappy where they are know there are other places which sound better.  If only they could get there.  Most don’t.  Which helps explain today’s refugee crisis.
