Welfare-Theoretical Analyses of the Brain Drain

Bhagwati, Jagdish N.; Rodriguez, Carlos A.

The paper reviews and synthesises the theoretical analyses of the brain drain in the earlier literature and in the present symposium in the Journal on the subject. Static analysis and dynamic analysis are distinguished, critical issues are raised relating to how welfare changes should be discussed in the context of migration, and possibilities of fruitful future research are outlined.
