Migration Analysis of the Czech Republic - Causality Problem
Migration is a phenomenon which attracts more and more attention from economists, policy makers and the public itself despite the migration itself has not signifi cantly risen recently. Although we are aware of possible causes and impacts of migration on social and economic situation of countries and regions we are still unable to develop a general theoretical model which would refl ect the reality. Neoclassical based models lead to income convergence among regions via migration however demand oriented models and models based on endogenous growth assumptions lead to opposite results ? divergence. Also numerous empirical studies lead to very diff erent results and we have to admit that for now it is necessary to deal with migration with cause and with respect to actual situation. Th is paper deals with migration among the regions in the Czech Republic confi rming income as one of migration factors. Th e most important part of the paper is analysis of causation when for the Czech Republic we may say that the demand oriented approach to migration is valid. Migration is caused by income gap but in a short term it is also positively infl uencing the income in immigrant regions. However in a long run the migration is supporting income convergence among the regions.
