This book comprehensively examines the role of economic growth (or lack of) as a driver of migration, as well as the impact of migration on economic growth in receiving and sending countries. Seminal papers have been selected which cover both, direct and indirect effects, as well as theoretical and empirical contributions. This important collection, along with an original introduction by the editors, provides a combination of the classical works and topics with the latest contributions and discussions. It is a comprehensive introduction for those interested in learning about the topic and an excellent source of reference for experts.
