Highly-Skilled in Limbo: Temporary Skilled Migrants in the US Dr. Wan Yu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at Binghamton University. Her specialty is on international migration, highly skilled migrants, and Asian Americans. In the past two decades, migrant workers have become an important source of the skilled labor force in the United States. The H-1B visa program has also become one hotly debated topic of U.S. immigration policies. Since the start of this visa program in 1990, temporary skilled migrants in the United States has not only grown in numbers but also become more ethnically homogenous, occupationally homogenous, and economically homogenous. During this talk, Dr. Yu will discuss the employment situation and spatial distribution of temporary skilled migrants in the United States, as well as how the recent changes on US immigration policies could affect their migration movements.

Collective Action by Contract: Prior Appropriation Property Rights and the Development of Irrigation in the Western United States. Presented by Gary D. Libecap (Professor at the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science & Management and the Department of Economics, University of California, Santa Barbara; Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, MA; and Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution Stanford). We analyze the economic determinants and effects of prior appropriation water rights that were voluntarily implemented across an immense area of the U.S. West, abruptly replacing common-law riparian water rights. The analysis reveals institutional innovation that informs both our understanding of the development of property rights, prior appropriation, and contemporary water policy. RSVP by March 30. Email tgreene@binghamton.edu or call 607-777-6799. Reception to follow. Sponsorship provided by Mario and Antoinette Romano Endowment, Harpur College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office and the Economics Department.
