THE IMMIGRATION MARKET
the economics of migration sorts people over borders (in terms of the
labour market)
People have the choice to go to other places to live and work; they
make the choice to move and migrate elsewhere given that those
places can provide them a better life (financial focus is in this paper)
constraints include wealth and legalities/policies that the
receiving country implements
these policies generate a variation in migration costs depending
on each migrant
host countries compete for talent (Think about Singaporean
cosmopolitanism and the push to attract foreign talent as a way to
secure a spot in the world’s economy)
