“The rapid and continuing growth of the Hispanic population ensures that the debate over social policy in the next few decades will increasingly focus on how best to alleviate the economic and social problems facing this population and perhaps encourage rapid assimilation. The studies in the volume edited by David Leal and Stephen Trejo provide an excellent foundation for this discussion. The conceptual issues and findings in these papers are sure to be valuable to both policy makers and researchers.” - George Borjas Robert W. Scrivner Professor of Economics and Social Policy John F. Kennedy School of Government Harvard University

Latinos and the Economy provides a truly authoritative but accessible compilation of first-rate scholarship on Hispanic incorporation, educational and political gains, and ongoing economic and cultural impacts. It is ‘must reading’ for anyone concerned about the future, especially as America moves inexorably towards becoming a majority-minority society by mid-century.” - Daniel T. Lichter Ferris Family Professor Department of Policy Analysis and Management Cornell University

“This is the volume to read for anyone interested in current American immigration issues or the role of Hispanics in the U.S. economy." Daniel S. Hamermesh Killam Professor of Economics University of Texas at Austin "The future of America is closely intertwined with the successful integration—economically, politically, and socially—of the Latino population. Latinos now comprise one of every seven workers and almost one of every five students in the United States. The research reported in this volume describes the challenges faced by Latinos in schools, the labor market, and in communities and explains their prospects for upward mobility. These studies suggest that a significant investment in expanding educational opportunities may be the single most important policy lever to incorporate Latinos into the American mainstream." - Charles Hirschman Professor of Public Affairs and Boeing International Professor of Sociology University of Washington
