Opposing Views From Persons In Whose Homes I Have Had Dinner

Pro: Robert Dujarric, writing in The Japan Times on the potential cultural diplomacy value of increased immigration into Japan.

Con (more skeptical, actually): Paul Scalise, writing in Newsweek, on the potential aggregate net economic cost of accepting immigrants, based upon Health, Welfare and Labour Ministry estimates.

What's nice is that I can agree on the validity of the points being raised by both authors.
