About the product

This document analyzes various economic policy regimes and eras since the 1870s to the early 21st century and their impact on international migration and international capital mobility. It examines to what extent periods of increased international migration have also been accompanied by periods of greater capital mobility and vice-versa. The document investigates the patterns and interactions between these two types of international resource transfers and the changing global savings and investment balances in the world economy.
