Determinantes económicos de la decisión de emigrar

Abstract

The purchasing power's difference between currencies appears to trigger a person to make the decision of emigrating, but it does not look to be the only one. European Union enlargement, immigration policies, as well as different personal and/or psychological reasons, have modified migrations trends. And this has not only affected people from outside the European Union, but people in general, all over the world. In countries like The Netherlands, the emigration flow, during the last years, has exceeded immigration, in all aspects, and even immigration flow, in relative and absolute numbers, has declined. This lets us initially suppose that there is no unique variable that can explain the reasons of the international migrations. One of this could be the exchange rate gap between currencies, which predictive worthiness is to be confirmed below.
