    I'm writing an essay on immigration and need to find out a historical event (probably best to be within the last century or so) where it led to a DECLINE in society's productivity.

    Thanks for all replies.

    People only tend to emigrate to countries that are expanding economically, so you're unlikely to see a rise in immigration coinciding with a fall in productivity.

    During the Russian civil war? A lot of poles came and the cities became very overcrowded and there were bad conditions in factories which lead to strikes.

    Thanks for the response.

    Is that decline in productivity from polish going into russia or polish going somewhere else abroad from russia?

    He's referring to immigrating into Russia.
    Overcrowding can lead to a fall in marginal productivity.
