Quantifying The Impact Of Highly-Skilled Emigration On Developing Countries

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Skilled migration is a key component of the globalization process. Recent theoretical literature shows that such migration affects the source countries in a number of ways. In particular, it has been suggested that remittances, return migration, network effects favoring international transactions and technology diffusion, as well as brain grain channels, may compensate the sending countries for their loss of human capital. These channels have been examined in the recent empirical literature, but have never been quantified so as to make them comparable.
