Abstract :
[en] We compare the effects of migration on the production of public goods, income taxes, and on the <br />welfare of residents in the sending and in the receiving country. Migration is driven by income <br />di¤erences between countries. Alternative wage adjustment scenarios are considered: fully <br />flexible wages; upward rigidity, and unemployment. We show that in all scenarios, emigration <br />is welfare detrimental for the origin country. Migration is welfare improving for the destination <br />country in presence of flexible wages and upward rigidity, but it has detrimental effects in <br />presence of unemployment.
