Abstract

El documento evalúa los efectos de las remesas en un grupo de indicadores de desarrollo económico en el Perú. El crecimiento sostenido del flujo de estos recursos durante las últimas dos décadas justifica nuestro estudio. Se estudia la contribución de las remesas en tres aspectos: el crecimiento económico, la pobreza y las horas trabajadas. Se encuentra que la tendencia creciente de las remesas ha contribuido significativamente en el crecimiento económico. Asimismo, al ser los migrantes en su mayoría personas educadas en términos relativos, las remesas contribuyen marginalmente en la reducción de pobreza. Finalmente, se encuentra una reducción de las horas trabajadas por efectos de las remesas.
