New theoretical models that account for a rich set of features of the goods and labor markets that allow capturing potential adjustment mechanisms and their determinants of the labor market and the economy to immigration and offshoring domestic jobs are developed. The analysis allows addressing e.g. job displacement effects, due to immigration or offshoring and higher goods and labor demands, due to efficiency improvement, and determining the driving forces behind the recent trends in the labor markets. The results of the analysis reveal important new insights regarding the opportunities and risks of immigration and offshoring for advanced economies.
