This article explains how immigration can alleviate the burden that ageing poses for the welfare states of most western economies. It uses the results of a macroeconomic model to outline the impact of ageing and immigration on economic growth. It concludes that immigration can indeed make a positive contribution as long as the immigrants are able to find work. Moreover, as immigrants become better educated, they make a higher contribution to economic growth.
