Migration and the wages differential

Α. Β. Κάτος


In this paper the author does not try to develop a complete theory of labor migration from the agricultural to the non-agricultural sector of an economy; rather, he tries to express some ideas and to investigate some ad hoc hypotheses which have been taken by some theorists. Therefore, in the first two sections of this paper he summarizes, in some way, the existing theoretical and empirical work in this area of research, and in the following five sections, he tries to extend it by investigating in a more analytical way the determinants and the mechanics of labor migration between the two sectors of an economy, i.e. the agricultural and nonagricultural.
