Abstract:

"The international mobility of people and elites is a main feature of the global economy of today and yesterday. Immigration augments the labor force in receiving countries and provides many of the bodies and minds that are essential to any vibrant economy. Talented people are critical to the transfer of knowledge, ideas, fresh capital, contacts, and entrepreneurial capacities. This book is based on a blend of theory, varied country examples, and rich historical material ranging from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. It discusses the conceptual underpinnings of the push and pull factors of current migration waves and their impacts for development on the source and receiving countries. The analysis reviews the historical context under which various migration experiences have taken place - both in periods of internationalism and in periods of nationalism - in order to contribute to debates on the desirability of and tensions and costs involved in the current process of international migration and globalization. These issues are relevant during both times of economic slumps and times of economic growth"--Provided by publisher.

"The international mobility of people is a main feature of the global economy of today and yesterday although external openness is oft en more favorable to goods and money than people across diff erent periods of the world economy including crisis, globalization, nationalism and autarkic trends. Immigration augments the labor force in receiving countries and provides many of the bodies and minds that are essential to any vibrant economy. Talented people are critical to the transfer of knowledge, ideas, fresh capital, contacts, and entrepreneurial capacities. Th is book that promotes a freer and more humane regime for the mobility of people is based on a blend of theory and empirical evidence comprising varied country examples, and rich historical material ranging from the mid-19th century to the early 21st century. It discusses the conceptual underpinnings of the push-and-pull factors of current migration waves and their impacts for development on the source and receiving countries.
