The Economics of Migration
The Economics of Migration
Professor Dean Yang
We will consider how migration is transforming societies around the globe. Are receiving countries better or worse off when they welcome new immigrants?  How can migrant-receiving societies do a better job welcoming immigrants? How do sending countries fare when their citizens leave? How can sending countries best harness international migration opportunities for development back home? Overall, is a world with international migration better off than a world without it?
