Transferts des migrants et offre de travail dans un modèle de signalisation

This paper analyses the impact of migrant remittances on the supply of labour of beneficiaries in a developing country. The model is cast as a two period game between a resident and an altruistic migrant, under imperfect information of the latter about the true economic situation of the former. The game presents a Hybrid Bayesian Equilibrium where at least some residents subject to a good economic situation would behave as if they were disadvantaged, only to manipulate donor's expectations. In some specific circumstances, the resident affected by the bad state of the world may undertake a costly signalling strategy.
