About the Program

In "Borderless Economics," Robert Guest argues that cheap travel and internet communication make it easy for immigrants to stay in touch with their home countries.  The connection they maintain, he says, creates powerful cross-border networks that foster innovation and economic growth worldwide.  Mr. Guest talks about this phenomenon with Washington Post Technology Reporter Cecilia Kang.
