    Abstract

    A human capital model of migration that includes location-specific capital and job search is integrated with job-matching/flows approach to labor markets. This generates a model that is consistent with the observed pro-cyclicality of new migration. Unlike all previous models, this model not only explains, it predicts the observed counter-cyclicality of return migration.
