Importing Poverty?

Philip Martin

Yale University Press

Rural–urban migration is a universal indicator of economic growth and development. Within developing countries, farmers are generally poorer than urban workers. This encourages rural–urban migration and has several implications for international migration. This epilogue discusses the role that agriculture plays in the economic differences that promote international migration.
