This chapter presents an empirical examination of the macroeconomic effects of remittances on remittance-receiving economies. Much of the early work on remittances’ macroeconomic impacts was carried out within the broader context of the economic development impact of migration. Taylor and others (1996a, 1996b) provide extensive surveys of this research, which includes discussion of the impacts of remittances.
