Moving from a poor economy to a rich one: The role of migrant job tasks

Summary:
Prof Eran Yashiv of Tel Aviv University in this voxeu research shows what happens to a migrant moving from a poor economy to a rich economy: What are the gains for workers from moving from a poor economy to a rich one? This column examines this question using the case of Palestinian workers who could decide to either work in the (poorer) local economy or commute to work in (richer) Israel. It finds productivity gains experienced by the migrants are largely offset by the low returns for the job tasks offered to these migrants in the richer economy.
