All the important elements of change appear entirely explicable in terms of the quantitative approach. However, the German experience is not entirely typical of the countries of immigration - a fact which should perhaps be signalIed by the fuller and more reliable data on foreign labour for Germany available for statistical analyses such as Böhning's. O'Loughlin (1986) has recently argued that political responses to recession have effectively eliminated the distinction between countries such as France and Britain which traditionally accepted permanent settlement and those such as Germany and Switzerland who have only seen themselves as temporary hosts to gastarbeiter.

In these circumstances the impact of labour immigration is liable to be more conservative than growth enhancing and to delay rather than facilitate necessary adjustments in product and labour markets. Moreover, the sectors involved are liable to be non-industrial or declining and thus less likely to generate favourable Verdoorn effects either. Finally, by concentrating foreign workers in a particular segment of the labour market with conditions and rewards that domestic workers would reject, the possibility of using them as a buffer against fluctuations in unemployment is greatly reduced.
