dc.description.abstractWorker remittances constitute an increasingly important mechanism for the transfer of resourcesfrom developed to developing countries, and remittances are the second-largest source, behindforeign direct investment, of external funding for developing countries. Yet, literature on workerremittances has so far focused mainly on the impact of remittances on income distribution withincountries, on the determinants of remittances at a micro-level, or on the effects of migration andremittances for specific countries or regions. The focus of this paper is thus on four questions: First,how important are worker remittances to developing countries in quantitative terms? Second, whatare the determinants driving worker remittances? Third, how volatile are worker remittances todeveloping countries? Fourth, are remittances correlated to other capital flows?en_US
