What fundamentals drive world migration?

5 Feb 2003
Description

How do standard economic theories of migration perform when confronted with evidence drawn from more than a century of world migration experience? How do inequality and poverty influence world migration? Is it useful to distinguish betwen migration pressure and migration ex-post, or between the potential demand for visas and the actual use of them? Timothy Hatton and Jeffery Williamson examine these issues.
