1. Machado Carneiro, Joël. On the consequences of increasing migration.

Degree: 2014, Université Catholique de Louvain

This thesis analyses the effects of increasing workers’ mobility through the elimination of policy barriers to migration. The first three chapters study the impact of liberalizing cross-border migration. The framework developed accounts for the prospective migrants’ desire to emigrate, based on an original dataset of desired and realized migration. Chapter 1 uses a static model to show that the gains of liberalization have been overestimated in the existing literature. Chapter 2 builds a dynamic extension of the model and shows that endogenous capital accumulation and fertility decisions raise the gains that could be expected from a liberalization in the long run. Chapter 3 analyzes the effects of a skill-selective liberalization and concludes that gains are unevenly distributed across traditional destination countries. On the other hand, developing countries would be harmed by the loss of educated workers, in particular if technological development depends on the share of human capital in the workforce. Chapter 4 focuses on the increase of mobility for workers already present in the economy by analyzing the effects of a regularization of undocumented workers. A calibration of the model to the US in 2011 concludes that legalizing all the illegal workers in the country would have limited effects on the natives’ welfare.
