N2 - Boyer and Petersen argue that folk-economic beliefs are widespread—shaped by evolved cognitive systems—and they offer exemplar beliefs to illustrate their thesis. We highlight evidence of substantial variation in one domain of these exemplars; beliefs about immigration. Contra B&Ps exemplars, the balance of this evidence suggests the “folk” may actually hold positive beliefs about the economic impact of immigration.
