TALES OF MIGRATION WITHOUT WAGE DIFFERENTIALS: INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY CONTEXTS

Oded Stark

No 18743, Discussion Papers from University of Bonn, Center for Development Research (ZEF)

Abstract: By means of examples that pertain to individual, family,and community contexts, it is shown that migration between locations is compatible with a zero expected net earnings differential between locations. The examples give rise to testable predictions that differ sharply from the predictions that emanate from a standard postulate of earnings differential.
