4.1.3. What do you think would happen if suddenly there was a huge decrease in immigrant workers-- for example in the agricultural industry? Do you think wages for the workers still there would rise?

4.2. 4 Main Theories of Migration

4.2.1. Neoclassical and New Economics Theory Neoclassical Economics Macro Micro Criticisms? New Economics Markets involved in New Economics Eight premises New Economics

4.2.2. Dual Labor Market Fundamental characteristics of advanced industrial societies and their economies Structural Inflation Motivational problems economic dualism / bifurcated labor market demography of labor supply Five Premises of Dual Labor Market Theory 1) intl. migration is largely demand-based and is initiated by recruitment on the part of employers 2) Since the demand for immigrant workers grow out f structural needs of the economy, intl. wage differences are neither necessary nor sufficient condition for labor migration to occur 3) low-level wages in immigrant receiving societies do not rise in response to a decrease in the supply of immigrant workers; they are held down by social and institutional mechanisms-- not free to respond to supply and demand 4) low-level wages may fall as a result of increase in supply of immigrant workers 5) govts. are unlikely to influence intl. migration through policies that produce small changes in wages or employment rates; immigrants fill a demand for labor that is structurally built into modern, post-industrial economies

4.2.3. World Systems Theory Resources in poor countries Land Raw materials labor material links ideological links global cities globalization e.g. factories in one country may be threatened by large scale economic changes Six Premises of World Systems Theory 1) intl. migration is natural consequence of capitalist penetration of developing countries 2) intl. flow of labor follows intl. flow of goods and capital, but in opposite direction 3) intl. migration is especially likely between past colonial powers and their former colonies 4) since intl. migration stems from globalization of the market economy, the way for govts. to influence immigration is by regulating overseas investments and controlling international goods 5) political and military interventions help to produce refugee movements-- when stats intervene to protect capital investments 6) intl. migration ultimately has little do with wage rates or employment differentials
