Brain drain and factor complementarity
AbstractIn this paper we develop a neoclassical growth model that aggregates different types of labor skills from strict complementarity to perfect substitution. After having derived general balanced growth conditions and developed explicit growth paths for capital and aggregate labor force, the model serves to qualitatively study the effect of brain drain on income and wages of the source country.
