Workers remittances and the real exchange rate: a quantitative framework

J Popul Econ. 1994;7(2):235-46. doi: 10.1007/BF00173621.


"Workers' remittances represent a sizeable component of international trade flows in goods and services. The paper tries to assess to what extent workers remittances are responsive to key macroeconomic variables.... Econometric estimation of a remittance equation for a sample of five Mediterranean countries indicates that the real exchange rate is indeed a significant determinant of remittances."
