      This view of international trade is controversial, however, and some argue that free trade can actually reduce migration between developing and developed countries. They can also mean net loss for a poor donor country through the loss of the educated minority—a " brain drain ". Conclusion There is tremendous potential for using remittances to encourage development in countries. We thus study the vast literature on the effects of immigration on the labor market and welfare system in host societies, as well as the more recent literature on the attitudinal and political consequences of immigration. Concerns about large negative effects on employment and productivity are not substantiated in most countries.

      Thus, the return rate to developing countries of origin varies immensely by country of origin and destination. In the areas of development economics and public economics, he has addressed issues in public sector pays and corruption, political economy of public goods, corruption and informal sector, etc. Emigration and return migration also lead to substantial externalities for the home country through investment, remittances, increased productivity, and skills transfers by return migrants. Third, the effect of local level exposure to immigrants and refugees on native attitudes towards immigrants and extreme voting has been found to vary by context and can be positive or negative. Overall, the empirical findings show that migrants from developing countries benefit.

      They can also mean net loss for a poor donor country through the loss of the educated minority—a " brain drain ". Another obvious problem is that out-migration does not necessarily mean return migration to the home country. Canada and Denmark, for example, do not report any remittance data. How is that possible? Migration is dynamic. These results reflect the diverse, and often opposing, ways in which employment protection legislation may affect productivity.
