Des Moines Public Library business book pick: “The Immigrant Superpower: How Brains, Brawn, and Bravery Make America Stronger,” by Tim Kane.
Why you should read it: In his 2022 book, economist and researcher Tim Kane argues that, despite America being a nation built by immigrants, there has long been political opposition and hostility to immigrants. Kane argues that immigration has always been a source of strength for American economics, national security, and culture, and his book presents a defense of even greater immigration.
