Reasons for Remitting

Oded Stark

No 52800, Discussion Papers from University of Bonn, Center for Development Research (ZEF)

Abstract: This paper presents a set of reflections on what gives rise to remittances, which constitute a major part of the impact of migration on economic development in the migrants’ own countries. The collage of reasons presented serves to illustrate that remittance behavior is the outcome of an intricate interplay between the preferences and interests of migrants and their families.
