Federico Mandelman () and
EconSouth, 2008, vol. 10, issue 3

An economic slowdown in the United States has dampened the growth of this payment method. Changing migration patterns, economic developments, and new technologies and policies are affecting how - and how many - remittances are sent abroad.
