I’m teaching a Master’s level class for the first time this spring on Global Political Economy. One of the sections we are going to cover is on immigration. With all of Lant Pritchett and Michael Clemens’ great work on this topic, I actually have too much material for that section of the class. I need to work to actually pare it down some.
Having said that, I do think I’ll add the following map to the syllabus. It gives a very nice illustration of how big migration flows are across the world, much more so then just a bunch of numbers on their own. I’d like to have one in per-capita terms as well but this is a good start.
