"This book provides an excellent overview and a penetrating analysis of migration in the global economy. Not only do the authors examine the economic, demographic, and fiscal forces that influence migration flows, but they also study how political considerations shape migration policies and migration patterns. The book is indispensible for anyone interested in the current debates on immigration."--Jess Benhabib, Paulette Goddard Professor of Political Economy and Professor of Economics, New York University(Jess Benhabib)
