Expats are often accused of raising house prices and stealing the Dutch jobs… What is your opinion about the expats in the Netherlands?

Expats are likely to create more jobs than they occupy.After all, unemployment is in part due to a lack of mobility in the labour market, so migration is good in that respect.

As for building land for new dwellings, it is different.The Netherlands is quite full, and the less crowded regions attract few expats. But there are also some Dutch people abroad who are relieving the Dutch housing market by leaving.

So don’t complain about migration.It is good for society.

Expats are usually fine.They fulfill functions that we do not have enough people for ourselves. It has been a stupid move by the government to bet on getting foreign companies to the Netherlands and failing to pursue a flanking housing market policy. If you order a tanker with water, you must first make sure that the pool is in your garden.

The more people the more demand for living space.It doesn’t matter much if those people are immigrant or are born here. Higher demand leads to higher prices. The more densely populated a region is, the more expensive the Schasrse space becomes. In a free market, the shore eventually returns to the ship. If a region becomes too expensive people will leave. As soon as a lot of useful, but less earning, people move away, the economic potential of the region will automatically stagnate and prices go down again.

Jobs are another thing.A job is not a property, so you can not steal it either. An employer hires the person who performs best for the most favourable price possible. This can be an expat.

I dispute the word ‘ often ‘ in the question.Also do not think it is so.

However, Europe has quite a strange system of TAV expats; To get a blue card, you’ll soon have a three-way modal.Those I know are people with unique knowledge and skills and are particularly valuable to our society.

Alas, they only take the place of the Dutch expats who leave again abroad.And both groups create jobs and economic growth. Which, incidentally, also applies to migrants.

As for the housing market: if it weren’t the expats then it would have been other better verdieners.The problem with the Dutch housing market is very complicated, in particular Amsterdam can not process the influx of employees and the surrounding municipalities to help Amsterdam in this way because they want only the attractive higher incomes Have. There is, of course, the population growth and the over-regulation of the housing market, which does not allow it to react adequately to this growth (invest in letting real estate in NL? No thanks, I don’t).

Some expats I find indeed annoying.But that they are driving up the house prices or stealing jobs I find debatable. It is true that many homes in major European cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, London, and perhaps Brussels have been bought up by foreigners. But that is the law of the economy. If there is an offer, then there is also demand.

One could possibly prohibit this legally, for example, that foreigners really have to live in the Netherlands if they want to buy a property.But whether this is desirable is another question.

Furthermore, I have personally experienced annoying situations with expats in The Hague, for example in public transport or in other public spaces.This is probably because they do not know the use in the Netherlands well or that they take the prejudices from their motherland to the Netherlands.

In principle, expats are also guest workers or migrant workers, but they only have better paid jobs.This also applies again to the law of the economy: there is supply and demand. Guest workers are there to fulfill vacancies, which cannot be fulfilled by Dutch people.

I hope I have answered this question.Thank you for asking me this question C茅line D茅camps (Quora user).

Under the EU’s strict rules, only expats from outside the EU should be granted a work and residence permit if they fulfil professional qualifications that are not fulfilled by EU people themselves.Issues that these knowledge migrants see wishing to recruit immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) should apply for a permit IN advance from the IND, substantiated by evidence that they have already done their best to have COMPETENT people from the EU To recruit.These knowledge migrants must also meet a (fairly high) income requirement, gross < 30 years old > 鈧?3,300/month, > 30 years > 鈧?4,500/month. So certainly no distortion of competition with low educated persons. People can also open their own business and obtain a work permit and residence permit.

So expats are refilling the professional qualifications that leave EU workers open, helping to keep the economy running.

The people who are employed by foreign affairs for short time in the Netherlands, do not fall here, in order to bring these people under pay these business grif coarse money to rent but suitable dwellings in the free Sektor for their.Price-driving? Probably, but only in certain places in the Randstad.

Houses) prices only go up when there is a shortage on the market, so when demand exceeds supply.

I’m an expat myself and I don’t take a job away from someone who lives here because the work I do needs a certain skill that someone can’t fulfill here.
