Abstract: This study investigates causal impacts of immigration on the German economy, explicitly distinguishing refugee and non-refugee migration. We propose a macroeconometric modelling approach complemented by IV techniques. We find that non-refugee migration has more beneficial medium-run effects on GDP and the labour market.
